If you did not attend the recently concluded annual conference of the Southeastern Council of Latin American Studies, you missed out. It was in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.
The setting was excellent and the conference as well, including a keynote address on Gabriel García Márquez (by Professor Gene Bill-Villada from Williams College) and a ton of panels. I believe it was the biggest SECOLAS ever.
SECOLAS 2017 will be on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill next March. It's a great conference and you should come.
