The fundamental goal of this section is to facilitate communication and interaction among members of LASA (academic researchers, students, non-academics) who study any aspect of Mexico, including the Mexican diaspora and Mexico’s relations within and beyond the Americas. The section seeks to promote activities (including the organization of panels, roundtables, and other events at LASA congresses as well as awarding prizes to books, essays and notable papers) that focus on these and other similar topics. The section covers academic research, artistic production and the debate on public policies in all disciplines and in different historical periods.
