This is aimed in particular at those readers in this general area, but is open to everyone:

UNC Charlotte’s program in Latin American Studies is calling for papers to present at the 5th annual William Wilson Brown, Jr. conference.  The conference theme is “Independence: International, National, and Local Perspectives.”  The conference is multi-disciplinary, so we welcome paper proposals on any aspect of Latin America.  It will take place on Friday, April 16 on the campus of UNC Charlotte, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The guest speaker for the conference will be Lars Schoultz, William Rand Kenan, Jr. Professor of Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  He is past president of the Latin American Studies Association and author of many books and articles, the most recent of which is That Infernal Little Cuban Republic: The United States and the Cuban Revolution, published by UNC Press in 2009.
