LASA is pleased to announce a new affiliation model that provides more affordable access to LASA membership and participation in the annual international Congress, particularly for residents of Latin America, the Caribbean and other developing regions of the world; for students worldwide; and for retired professors, contingent faculty, independent scholars, and practitioners.
This new model consists of an All Access fee that will allow LASA members to receive all current benefits of the affiliation such as access to grants and fellowships, access to the online LASA Member Directory and the opportunity to participate in the governance of the Association among many others, plus registration to the annual international Congress. Future congresses will be offered in a hybrid mode (in person and virtual) so even if a person is not able to travel to the Congress location, they will be able to attend all sessions as if they were on-site.
The Latin American Studies Association (LASA) is the largest professional association in the world for individuals and institutions engaged in the study of Latin America. With over 13,000 members, over 60% of whom reside outside the United States, LASA is the one association that brings together experts on Latin America from all disciplines and diverse occupational endeavors, across the globe. LASA's mission is to foster intellectual discussion, research, and teaching on Latin America, the Caribbean, and its people throughout the Americas, promote the interests of its diverse membership, and encourage civic engagement through network building and public debate.
