Various “border encounters” highlight the ways in which borders can both restrain and liberate the objects, people, or ideas that face them, a distinction that is often bound up with power and politics. With this broad theme in mind, LAGO has invited graduate scholars across disciplines to submit abstracts exploring the notion of borders—their strictures, leniencies, and significance—in Latin America and the Caribbean for LAGO’s 2014 graduate student conference. LAGO encourages participants to interpret this theme as they see fit.

"Latin American Studies at the Edge: Challenging Regional Margins"
Institute of Latin American Studies Student Association (ILASSA)
University of Texas at Austin
In the past two decades, Latin American Studies has been at a crossroads, encountering persistent theoretical criticisms and political challenges. Among the many rejoinders to these challenges, we have seen efforts to promote interdisciplinary academic inquiry, to increase dialogue with voices south of the Rio Grande, and new methods that foster collaborations between academics and non-academics. Have these reactions been enough? Have they generated other challenges? Do we need to rethink the idea of Latin American Studies? These matters and more will be discussed during the ILASSA XXXIV Conference.
