Gender and Feminist Studies

A Section of the Latin American Studies Association


The LASA Gender and Feminist Studies Section is dedicated to promoting networking and dialogue on issues related to women and gender in Latin America and the Caribbean, incorporating different aspects of feminist studies in the social sciences and the humanities.

The Section assists researchers, students, practitioners and others interested in the exchange of ideas and academic work. The LASA Gender Section makes a special invitation to new people to integrate as members of our Section and to participate in the next International Congress.

The LASA Gender and Feminist Studies Section also organizes a pre-conference prior to the LASA Congress and the LASA Gender Award. The pre-conference will take place in San Francisco, USA, just before the regular LASA conference (scheduled to be held on May 23-26 2012). Complete information about the theme and organization of the pre-conference will be available in the coming months.
