Call for Proposals: Virtual Events on Latin America and the Caribbean for Spring 2021

Back to News

Published: Tuesday, 01 Dec 2020 Author: Laurie Medina

CLACS invites informal proposals from faculty for virtual events on Latin America or the Caribbean for spring 2021. We encourage suggestions of speakers/topics that will bring multiple faculty into conversation and/or enrich your spring courses. Because we are limited to online events, we want to turn this into an opportunity to engage thought leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean – from inside or outside academia – virtually.

CLACS will support selected events by:

  • working with faculty to develop the best format for the event
  • inviting speakers
  • providing a modest honorarium for speakers
  • managing technology/logistics
  • promoting the event

Please submit your ideas to Laurie Medina (medina(at) by December 15.
