SCOLAS is an interdisciplinary organization that encourages diverse panels, methods, and interests. We welcome participation by scholars and students interested in Latin America, including studies of immigration, transnationalism, and U.S. Hispanic history, literature and culture.

SCOLAS hosts annual conferences in Latin America and the southwestern United States. These conferences offer stimulating panels, opportunities to meet other scholars, visits to places of historical and cultural importance, and awards for books, articles, and graduate students.

SCOLAS has strong participation from both the United States and Mexico and enjoys one of the largest bases of any regional Latin American conference in the United States.   check out our YouTube channel
