ILASSA Annual Conference
The Institute of Latin American Studies Student Association (ILASSA) hosts an annual conference at The University of Texas each year during the Spring semester. This is the oldest student-run academic conference on Latin America in the United States. The conference provides students with the opportunity to present research activities, develop presentational skills, exchange ideas and information, and meet other scholars from around the world. Undergraduate and graduate students from across the U.S. and Latin America will present their research on a wide range of critical topics, including immigration, human rights, social movements, indigenous rights, and social policy.
