University of Reading Latin America & Caribbean network (R-LAC): Virtual Launch event

Join us online for the launch event of R-LAC, the University of Reading Latin America & Caribbean network

R-LAC is a network of researchers and postgraduate students based at the University of Reading. We aim to provide a uniquely interdisciplinary environment for the expansion of this regional focus within our university and beyond. With this aim in mind, our final end is to focus on both teaching and research in Latin American and Caribbean studies, seeking to develop relationships internally as well as externally in the UK, the Americas, and wherever there is a relevant dedicated institute or network that can help us enhance R-LAC.

Please register to attend via Eventbrite.
