Latin American Research Centre
we expand horizons
The Latin American Research Centre welcomed over 140 participants from close to 10 different countries as part of the 2016 Canadian Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies conference June 1-3. The theme Hybrid Communities, Societies, Spaces, and Subjectivities attracted faculty and students alike to present multi- and inter-disciplinary research spanning the Americas. Keynote speakers brought experience, insight and humor to the event. Dr. Sara Castro Klarén (Johns Hopkins University) addressed the current state of Latin American Studies in the age of globalization; while Ing. Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas (Fundación para la Democracia) spoke about the challenges to democracy and social justice in Mexico.
