Annual LatCrit Conference (ALC)
The Annual LatCrit Conferences (ALC) began to take shape after the
Colloquium organized by the Hispanic National Bar Association in 1995
and held in San Juan Puerto Rico. Now in their eleventh year, are designed
to spur the critical, cross-disciplinary study of Latinas/os as a multiply
diverse and transnational social group, and in relationship to other
social groups subordinated socially and/or legally. The conferences
are planned ahead in two-year cycles: LatCrit XI will be hosted by the
University of Nevada, Las Vegas William S. Boyd School of Law, and will
meet in Las Vegas during October 5-8, 2006; and LatCrit XII will be
hosted by the College of Law, Florida International University in Miami
during October 15-19, 2007. The Annual Conferences are organized by
a Project Team, and membership is open to anyone. The Annual Call for
Papers, Panels and Participation is issued each spring. For more information
