The LSA conference will be open to dues paying members of the LSA who register to attend.
The LSA publications include an organizational website, along with a presence on other social media such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. to publicize the bi-annual conference and to disseminate research, scholarship and information about Latino Studies and Latina/os in the United States. The LSA is also a professional association for Latino/a Studies scholars to support their higher education and entry into the academy, their professional development and their public and community engagement.
