SCOLAS is an interdisciplinary organization that encourages diverse panels, methods and interests. They welcome participation by any scholars dealing with Latin American-related issues, including studies of immigration, transnationalism and U.S. Hispanic culture.
SCOLAS hosts annual conferences in Mexico and the southwestern United States. Previous conference sites include San Antonio, New Orleans, Morelia, Santa Fe, MTrida and Monterrey. These conferences offer stimulating panels, opportunities to meet other scholars, field trips to places of historical and cultural importance and prizes for books, articles and graduate students.
The 2010 SCOLAS Conference will be held in Sante Fe at the La Fonda Hotel.
