Become a member!
We encourage you to join MACLAS, a community of scholars and others from New York to Virginia that are interested in Latin America. Membership is open to all. We welcome participation from senior scholars; assistant, associate, and full professors; both undergraduate and graduate students; and librarians, researchers, and others. We publish a peer-review online journal, the Middle Atlantic Review of Latin American Studies (MARLAS), and award book, article and paper prizes to our members.
Benefits of membership.
Joining MACLAS means joining a relatively small, regional, cross-disciplinary, and eminently collegial network of engaged researchers in your own backyard. It means becoming part of a larger community of scholars connected by their shared interest in things Latin American. It also means:
Publication possibilities in the peer-reviewed Middle Atlantic Review of Latin American Studies
Awards for the publication of articles and books
Professional leadership opportunities on the elected Executive Committee
Sponsorship of outstanding graduate and undergraduate student researchers
How to become a MACLAS member? Two ways.
1. Join when you register for our annual conference. To be on the conference program, you must be a member of MACLAS. The registration form includes information about annual dues and allows you to pay for both membership and conference attendance at one time. To become a member or renew your membership, and/or register for our 2020 conference at Salisbury University in Salisbury, MD, visit https://maclas2020.exordo.com/. You can also mail us a check for the proper amount (see below).
2. Join at any other time. For a one-page PDF file with current information about dues and how to become a member, click here or on the image at right, or contact MACLAS Treasurer Michael Schroeder at email@example.com. Annual membership dues range from $15 to $45 depending on status & income—an eminently affordable way to remain professionally connected to your field and your colleagues in Latin American Studies!
