Call for Papers LACAS Conference 2016 Binghamton University-SUNY

Extended Application Deadline February 15, 2016

¿Quiénes somos? Who are we? Qui sommes-nous? Kisa nou ye?
Moving, Crossing, and Living In Multiplicity

The Latin American and Caribbean Area Studies (LACAS) Program at Binghamton University invites proposals for research presentations at our third biennial undergraduate research conference, to be held at the in Binghamton, New York on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at the University Downtown Center. Undergraduates enrolled in any college or university are invited to submit proposals to present their research and creative work, which can be works in progress or completed projects. We welcome submissions on all topics related to Latin America, the Caribbean, and people of Latin American and Caribbean diasporas in any discipline.

This expansive field lends itself to asking questions from intersectional perspectives since Latin America, the Caribbean, and their diasporas are far from homogeneous. Their multiplicity means a plethora of possible research methodologies as well as political and activist approaches to the production of knowledge about Latin America, the Caribbean and its peoples.

¿Quiénes somos? Who are we? Qui sommes-nous? are questions that ask not only about ourselves but about our broader society and histories. We encourage papers that offer critical perspectives of Latin America, the Caribbean, and the transnational and global journeys of people, goods, narratives, and productions, as well as experiences of intersecting racialized, gendered, and classed subjects with multiple sexualities and ethnic identities.

Please submit a brief (about 200) word abstract of your fifteen-minute conference presentation, with your name, paper title, major, and college/university via email to
