The Americas Council provides an annual conference for presenters and participants to explore critical socio-cultural, political, economic, environmental, global, regional and national issues including the challenges and opportunities facing Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada.




While the focus of this conference is primarily for university/college faculty members, we are inviting graduate and undergraduate students to show case their research on the Americas.

Topics and categories of presentations on Latin America, Caribbean and Canada include: Regional Politics; Regional Economics, Trade and Business Issues; Migration and immigrants; Ecology and the Environment (e.g. earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, forest fires); Cultural Studies (including music and dance), Anthropology, Arts, Language and Literature; Sociological issues and social problems (e.g. drugs, crime, sex trafficking, poverty); Gender; Indigenous Populations; Regional, Global and other Geographical Issues; Education and Health; Science and Technology; History, Ethnographic and Archeological Science; Latin American studies and philosophy; Teaching Paradigms: Interdisciplinary and Inter-cultural Perspectives; Study abroad programs and outcomes.

We invite colleagues who are researching and teaching or otherwise interested in Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada to attend and/or present at this conference. We ask also that you encourage colleagues and students working in these areas to present.
