LAP at LASA 2018

We look forward to seeing many of our editors and friends in Barcelona  at LASA.
LAP Booth – We will be at booth B-42 in the exhibit area. We will have brochures, flyers, and calls for papers.  It would be great if you want to distribute these in your sessions. Just stop by and pick up what you need.  We will also have sample copies of books from our series with Rowman and Littlefield. The exhibit hours will be: Thursday and Friday, May 24 and 25, from 9:30 am to 7:30 pm and Saturday, May 26, from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. We would appreciate anyone who can help us staff the table for an hour or two.
Roman and Littlefield booth – B-40
Meeting of Editors and Friends of Latin American PerspectivesThursday, May 24, 9:00 – 10:30 am AC Hotel Barcelona Forum – Sala VallvidreraWe look forward to seeing you at our annual get-together to discuss LAP’s work during the past year and future plans. In the printed program, the session is listed in the Highlights section on p. xxi as an “outside activity” rather than as a session in the listings by day and time but it has been added to the day and time section of the app. We don’t think that it will be possible to provide refreshments, so we suggest having breakfast before the meeting or bringing it with you.

NACLA 50th Anniversary Events
Documentary Showcase: Treguain partnership with Pablo Navarette and Alborada FilmsScreenings 7:00 – 8:00 pm and 8:00 – 10:00 pm (second screening with Q&A)Nook Art Space, Nou de la Rambla 143, 08004, Poble Sec
Tregua explores the Colombian peace negotiations through the stories of women FARC guerrillas. These women have laid down their arms, left the Colombian jungle and are now  in Havana, Cuba negotiating a peace deal with the Colombian government, which they hope will not only bring an end to the world’s longest armed conflict, but will also guarantee women’s rights and social justice in Colombia. While the drama unfolds, Tregua also turns its lens on the journalists reporting on the peace talks, and on Havana’s inhabitants as they go about their everyday lives.
