Opportunity: REPAL ANNUAL MEETING 2021

The 7th Repal conference will take place on July 15- 17th, 2021 (10-4pm EST) and is being hosted virtually by Cornell University’s Einaudi Center.  Accepted papers and book panels are now posted on the Repal 2021 conference site.  

Repal’s annual conference provides a setting for researchers based in Latin America and outside of the region to share work-in-progress examining the political economy of Latin America.  In thematic terms, scholars in the Repal network analyze the interaction among economic, political and social processes. With respect to methods of research and analysis, Repal is open and eclectic, based on a simple premise that the methods should be selected as a function of the problem to be studied rather than the reverse. This year, there will be four parallel sessions over three days. 

Registration is now open!  One does not need to present at Repal to attend, and we actively encourage attendance beyond those presenting. If you plan to attend, it is important to register in advance so as to receive access to the papers that will be discussed before the start of the meeting.  

Please register here.  (Registration payments for those who previously registered for the cancelled 2020 conference will carry over to this conference.) Registration rates for Repal 2021 are $10 for students, $30 for non-students based in Latin America, and $50 for non-students based outside Latin America.  If you are facing economic hardships due to Covid, the registration fee can be waived; please contact repalconference@gmail.com.
