Welcome to the website of the Middle Atlantic Council of Latin American Studies (MACLAS). We are an interdisciplinary association that promotes and develops interest in Latin American studies and affairs. Each year we hold a conference somewhere in the mid-Atlantic region. We also publish Latin American Essays and a thrice-yearly newsletter, and award prizes for articles and books published by MACLAS members.
