We believe the new academic and practical challenges linked to the current crisis will unite us all and offer new opportunities.
Besides providing an environment for intellectual engagement, academic feedback and the development of presentation skills, our aim is to see the seminars continue to function as a facilitator for the construction of a network of junior scholars interested in Latin America. Therefore, amidst the COVID19 crisis we have decided to organize an online seminar for all of you who would like to participate either as presenters or attendees. The Latin American Graduate Network is now accepting papers for our online Trinity Term seminar that will take place on Wednesday 20 May from 5pm to 7 pm.
