Paraguay at the Crossroads - March 9-10, 2017

CALL FOR PAPERS

 

March 9-10, 2017

Center of Latin American & Caribbean Studies

University of Kansas
Lawrence, Kansas

 

Paraguay has been undergoing many tumultuous political, economic, and social changes, but its larger neighbors have attracted most of the attention.  Some changes stem from long historical trajectories and others have been spurred by the recent intensification of globalization. In this intimate and influential conference, we invite scholars from all disciplines whose research and critical eye can put these changes in perspective and identify future trends.  The U.S. Embassy in Paraguay will fund the participation of at least one speaker from Paraguay to the conference.

 

Paraguay and the State of Kansas have had an official partnership led by the Kansas Paraguay Partners and the Comité Paraguay-Kansas for forty-eight years. Both organizations are members of the Partners of the Americas (POA), the Western hemisphere’s largest private, apolitical volunteer organization. The partnership has included commercial, governmental, and educational collaboration. Currently, nearly 200 Paraguayan students attend Kansas universities, while several Kansas faculty and students have researched and studied abroad in Paraguay. The day after the conference, participants are invited to stay for the KPP’s annual meeting.  Representatives from Paraguay’s U.S. Embassy and the U.S. Department of State/USAID will attend.
