Latin American Studies Association (LASA)


LASA Sections exist to promote the common interest of Association members in specific areas of Latin American Studies. They are a means of increasing communication and interaction among persons of similar interests within the framework of the larger organization. They help to broaden involvement in LASA, and to make the Association more participatory and responsive to constituencies.

For 2018 there are 39 Sections. LASA members may join as many Sections as they choose. The only requirements are that their LASA membership be current and that they pay an additional fee for Section membership.

The following statements reflecting the mission and activities of each Section are provided by the Section chairs. The name of the current chair and his/her email address are also provided. Please feel free to contact that individual directly if you have specific questions related to a Section and to contact the LASA Secretariat if you wish to join a particular Section.
