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.
Join us for MACLAS 2015 at Ithaca College!
The 2015 Conference will be April 17-18. The theme is “Altered States: Cross-disciplinary explorations of tradition and the emergent in Latin America.” For further information on the conference, click here. A call for papers has been issued. Submission information can be found here.
