Ethnicity, Race and Indigenous Peoples

Welcome to the Latin American Studies Association section on Ethnicity, Race,
and Indigenous Peoples. We are committed to scholarly collaboration and
exchange of ideas with respect to the study of ethnicity, race, Indigenous peoples,
Afro-descendants and related issues in Latin America and the Caribbean. We also
seek to promote greater participation of Indigenous and Afro-descendant
scholars and intellectuals in the activities of the Latin American Studies
Association and, more generally, in scholarly and academic communities. We
have more than 300 members representing diverse academic disciplines,
including anthropology, history, sociology, political science, linguistics, Spanish
and Portuguese, geography, literature, and the law.
