JUNE 15-17, 2017

The Nordic Latin American Research Network (NOLAN) is organizing its 9th Conference, hosted by the School of Global Studies at the Campus Linné, University of Gothenburg. The theme is 'Latin American Challenges in the 21st Century: Societies in Motion' (Desafíos latinoamericanos en el siglo XXI: Sociedades en movimiento). 

About the Conference


Social, cultural, economic, political and natural phenomena in Latin America are increasingly challenging established frontiers. They cross national borders, but also a number of other physical, cultural and other frontiers. As the rest of the world, Latin America is embedded in global challenges and affected by war conflicts, the threat of terrorism, massive waves of migration and difficulties to deal with the consequences of climate change.

However, Latin America shows nuances in these concerns that we want to focus on. Through our choice of themes and key note speakers at this Conference, we strive to contribute to shed light on the complex processes of on-going transformation in the region, placing them in their historical background, and discovering their multiple expressions and implications.


This conference will also house the already traditional workshops organised by the more than 20 years old Nordic Network on Women and Gender Research in Latin America (Haina) that will cover the gender thematic running through all disciplines, and the European Network of Information and Documentation on Latin America, REDIAL, will hold its 28th annual meeting and conference.
