2017 LAGO Conference: Call for Abstracts

“Knowledge and Power”
LAGO Graduate Student Conference
January 27th, 28th, and 29th, 2017
New Orleans, Louisiana

Tulane University’s Latin American Graduate Organization (LAGO) invites paper and panel proposals for our 2017 Graduate Conference: “Knowledge and Power”, to be held January 27-29 in New Orleans. At the conference, we encourage participants to engage in an interdisciplinary discussion on subjects related to inequalities in the creation and distribution of information – cultural, historical, empirical, and digital – in the Americas and the Caribbean. In addition to discussing social, economic, and political barriers to knowledge production and access, we seek to highlight a broad range of dialogues that move beyond the boundaries between traditional academic disciplines. Papers from all disciplines that explore any historical or contemporary moment are welcomed.

Conference participants will be able to meet and dialogue with Latin Americanist graduate scholars, faculty, and community leaders from around the world, explore New Orleans, and experience the city’s unique Mardi Gras season.

Thank you for your interest in our event. The submission deadline has passed, but we would love for you to join us in January. The conference will be free and open to the public.
