Europe and Latin America

A Section of the Latin American Studies Association


LASA’s Europe and Latin America Section (ELAS) serves to promote, on a multi-disciplinary basis, scholarly relations between Latin Americanists from Europe and the Americas, and it fosters research on the relation and comparison of Europe and Latin America. Traditionally it sponsors two panels at each LASA congress. To become a member of ELAS, in addition to being affiliated with LASA, you should subscribe to the Section when you fill in the LASA regular form (either annually or every three years, as you wish). You can do it any time at LASA's website. This site is also intended to serve as a research tool for scholars, students and practitioners interested in European-Latin American affairs. It contains news about activities of the Section, but also about academic activities of other institutions linked with the Section. Feel free to send us suggestions and news that you consider useful to be circulated, to the emails: and/or
