The Latin American Studies Association (LASA) is the largest professional Association in the world for individuals and institutions engaged in the study of Latin America. With over 5,000 members, twenty-five percent of whom reside outside the United States, LASA is the one Association that brings together experts on Latin America from all disciplines and diverse
occupational endeavors, across the globe.

LASA's mission is to foster intellectual discussion, research, and teaching on Latin America, the Caribbean, and its people throughout the Americas, promote the interests of its diverse membership, and encourage civic engagement through network building and public debate.

Every eighteen months, specialists on Latin America gather at the LASA International Congress. Featuring over 700 sessions, including plenary sessions and informal meetings, the Congress is the world's premier forum for expert discussion on Latin America and the Caribbean. LASA 2009 will take place Rio de Janeiro between June 11-14. 2009. The topic is: Rethinking Inequalities.

LASA members enjoy a wide variety of benefits as noted on the Membership Information link. Membership is available to individuals and institutions sharing the Association's commitment to the field of Latin American studies.
