The Center for Latin American Studies considers proposals to organize or co-sponsor faculty- and student-led initiatives from the University of Florida, as well as from other academic and cultural institutions. These initiatives include but are not limited to, conferences, lectures, invited speakers, community engagement, arts initiatives, and other events both on- and off-campus. If you wish to propose a speaker for one of the Center’s lecture series, you’re welcome to do so. We also accept proposals for a Spanish-speaking audience.
