À propos de la conférence

The annual meeting of the Canadian Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies is the largest Canadian gathering of experts on all aspects of Latin American society, culture, politics, history, economics and development. With participants from Canada, the United States, and several Latin American countries, it is a unique opportunity to reflect on the issues that have shaped this region and that will shape it in the future.
The theme of the conference of the Canadian Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies is Hybrid Communities, Societies, Spaces, and Subjectivities. Many of our papers focus on the mix of Indigenous, African and European influences that produced hybrid Latin American and Caribbean societies. From food, music, and language to literature and religion, hybrid heritages are deep and rich. Hybridity is not only a product of mixed societies, but also a perspective from which people in the region view the world: not as a lesser form of established ideas, but as a generator of new ones. In this spirit, we aim to reflect on and foster hybridity in a wide range of contexts and disciplines. This aim is part of the University of Calgary’s commitment toward “Energizing communities” through Congress 2016, “rooted in the belief that knowledge and understanding are created through associations of shared values, grounded in respect for difference and diversity among all peoples.”
