About the seminar
The Latin American Anthropology Seminar series is a forum in which anthropologists, and other researchers who use ethnography, in the early phase of their careers and working in Latin America and the Caribbean can present their work and get feedback in a supportive and collaborative environment, as well as build connections between researchers and departments. The seminars take place fortnightly during the Autumn and Winter terms. They are chaired by peers on a rotational basis and take the form of around 45-minute presentations and another 45 minutes for questions and discussion. Since 2020, the seminar has been held online to enable participation beyond the UK.
This is an initiative that has been running for over a decade and is currently led by the Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at the School of Advanced Study, University of London, and convenors from the universities of Cambridge and Aberdeen.
