Summer Borrowing

Because we conduct an inventory of the entire collection during the summer, regular borrowing is not possible. If you want to preview or use items in a course over the summer, you must turn in a request form by June 15th that includes ALL the materials you wish to use over this period. The items will then be sent to you in one shipment arriving no later than June 30th. They are not due back until August 15th.

We encourage you to submit these requests early to ensure your materials arrive promptly. Please mark the date field as summer semester. All users are limited to a total of 15 (fifteen) items per summer session. Note that this is the limit for summer borrowing only. If you have any questions, please contact the LARC.

Latin American Graduate Oraganization (LAGO) 2018 Conference: Call for Proposals

View Full Event Description

The Latin American Graduate Organization will be hosting its 2018 Latin American Studies Conference titled Thinking of the Future: Expanding the possible in the Americas (Pensando en el porvenir: Expandiendo lo posible en las Américas) February 23 – 25, 2018, at Tulane University, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This year, the conference topic is meant to challenge academics and activists to move beyond critiques and recommendations of how to address modern days issues, and instead articulate a vision of and for the future.

The LAGO Conference welcomes all disciplines and all approaches, as long as the project attempts to grapple with the idea of building something better. This is a Latin American Studies Conference, but creative writers, journalists, artists, performers, organizers, lawyers and healthcare providers as well as graduate students and other academics are welcome. Proposals are accepted in Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Creole, and English.

Deadlines: Abstracts of papers and projects are due November 25, 2017. Abstracts of papers or project descriptions must not exceed 300 words.

Please contact with questions. For more information, visit the official conference website.
