As many graduate students and senior scholars from various parts of the world travel to the Andes during the month of July to conduct research, we at the University of Pennsylvania have decided to organize an event in Cusco, Peru designed to build on and make visible this exciting scholarly community. The purpose of the Andean Research Proseminar is to create an interdisciplinary space where researchers can share current and ongoing research and writing projects with colleagues from universities in the Andean region and beyond whose research aligns with their own. In addition, the event seeks to offer a more relaxed and amicable opportunity for scholars from different disciplines and residing in different countries to network, get to know each other or reconnect and develop relations outside of the university and conference setting.
The event will take place in the city of Cusco, Perú during July 8th and 9th, 2016. Please, check the call for submission here.
