LASA 2023 Congress in Vancouver - CALL for proposals

We invite our memers to send us their proposals by September 2nd in order to assmble the sessions and submit them in a timely manner before the congress' call closes on September 8th at 5:00 pm US Eastern time

1. A Panel:

This panel is meant to align thematically with the Congress' topic Pensar, Representar y Luchar por los Derechos (click on link for the call's description). An alignment of socio-environmental issues and the challenge of defending collective and individual rights in the region has been a frequent topic of research among our session's members, so we are not narrowing down the thematic reach of the panel at this time. A title will be selected once we receive proposals. This session will accommodate 4-5 presenters.

2. Our usual Workshop:

"Emerging Issues in Latin American Environmental Research," that accommodates roughly 8-10 presenters. This is a relatively informal format in which participants are encouraged to briefly present their current research without a paper, to enable discussion, feedback, questions, and dialogue.

3. A Round Table:

also meant to align with the Congress' theme Pensar, Representar y Luchar por los Derechos (click on link for the call's description), the round table, rather than traditional presentations as in a panel, is an opportunity to connect the diverse works of presenters into a common thread that can foster a conversation or collective/creative analysis and engages the audience. As such, each presenter's intervention is shorter and seeks to find connections with others in order to engage the audience in a multi-presenter conversation. Once again, a focused title will be selected once we receive proposals. This will accommodate 4-5 presenters.
