LASA's annual International Congress is the premier forum for expert discussion on Latin America and the Caribbean. The 33rd LASA Congress will be held in May, 2015 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, for a presumed audience of between 4,000 and 5,000 Latin Americanists. The Congress features over 800 sessions, which will focus this year on the theme of Precariedades, Exclusiones, Emergencias, with special attention to social and labor issues in Latin America; the academic workplace and education; and modalities of knowledge exchange. The Tinker Foundation will support the event by covering travel costs for select Latin American participants.
