Frontiers in Central American Research, une journée d’étude à Londres

20 March 2015 Conference at the Institute of Latin American Studies, University of London

Central America does not figure prominently in many conference programmes, but there are many scholars from different humanities and social science disciplines working on the region. This one-day workshop aims to bring together scholars of Central America to showcase their work and network with others working on the region. It is hoped that it will provide an overview of the research being conducted on Central America and identify emerging themes.

We therefore invite established scholars and PhD students from any humanities and social discipline to submit papers. These will then be organised around themes that will best promote dialogue. Potential topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Violence, Memory and Human Rights
  • New Perspectives on the Conflicts of the 1980s
  • Central America’s International Relations
  • Social Movements and Social Justice
  • Geography and the Environment
  • Gender, Race and Ethnicity in Central America
  • Indigenous Cultures, Languages and Histories
  • History and Archaeology
  • Film, Literature and Visual Culture
  • Democracy and Governance
  • The ‘Pink Tide’ in Central America
