2019 17th Annual Tulane University Student Conference on Latin America (TUSCLA)

View Full Event Description

The Stone Center’s annual TUSCLA conference is an interdisciplinary student symposium in which seniors from the Latin American Studies undergraduate core seminar, first-year graduate students in the graduate Latin American Studies core seminar and undergraduates in Newcomb-Tulane College conducting original research on Latin America present their individual research projects. TUSCLA was formally launched as TUCLA in Fall of 2003 as a means to provide Latin American Studies undergraduates with an opportunity to present papers in the style and atmosphere of an academic conference. In 2006 it was transformed into a public, all-day event with faculty discussants and in 2017 expanded into the current TUSCLA conference, to include graduate students and the wider undergraduate community. The conference is designed to enlist all Tulane undergraduates, graduate students and faculty interested in the region in a shared discussion of the region, its society and its cultures.

Please join us for the 17th annual conference. This event is free and open to the public. TUSCLA is sponsored by the Stone Center for Latin American Studies.
