Historia Reciente y Memoria

The central goals of the Historia Reciente y Memoria Section are to promote interdisciplinary and international dialogue and collaboration among scholars interested in analyzing the recent past of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean and the use and/or the abuse of memory of that past in the present. The Section sponsors panels and roundtables at LASA congresses, and uses the internet (including an electronic newsletter and list-serve) to facilitate a fluid and continuous communication among Section members around themes of mutual interest.
