Call for Papers Submission Form
The 8th Annual La Academia del Pueblo Latino/a and Latin American Studies Research Conference seeks to deliberately establish connections between the academy, engaged citizens, and urban communities.

The conference committee invites submissions of abstracts for poster boards and panel presentations from junior and senior faculty members, undergraduate and graduate students, artists, filmmakers and community members conducting Latino/a and Latin American research.
