A Section of the Latin American Studies Association


Dear LASA Environment Section members,

As you all may know by now, the 2021 congress in Vancouver will be, once again, a virtual LASA Congress (see LASA email communication 11/16/2020). Details are shaping up and they will continue to be communicated over the next two months, by LASA administrative team, although we can assume that the congress will maintain last year's modality, which for our section was successful. Last May, everyone who was interested in presenting at the congress and had submitted a proposal, was able to present. We had excellent attendance and participants from various disciplinary backgrounds, and shared discussions with other sections. We had special guests such as Mexican researcher and intellectual Enrique Leff, that enriched discussions. Please review the information about the various sessions, abstracts and presenters offered on this website. We look forward to seeing you (virtually) at the four session spponsiored by our Environment Section of LASA. 

Important Dates and Details:

1. CONGRESS DATES: May 26-29, 2021

2. GRANTS Deadline for accepted panel presenters: March 15. What this means for the section is: 1. Grants will only be awarded for Congress registration as there is no travel involved this year; 2. Grants are awarded to presenters in accepted sessions; 3. Requests for Grants need to be received by by March 7, for our sections committee to process the information.
Submit your registration grant application to our Environmental Section Grant Committee.

3. CONGRESS REGISTRATION DEADLINE: March 11 for all presenters, in order to guarantee that everyone's names appearc on teh program. Others, March 15th. 

Please visit the LASA Environment page on the LASA Website for further details or email Co-Chairs Maria Alessandra Woolson and Lidia Blásquez Martínez.

Best regards,

Maria Alessandra Woolson & Lidia Blásquez Martínez
