We still have 12 days to reach our goal!

November 16, 2017



In the last 18 days, eight donors have helped us raise $2,560 toward the 38th Annual ILASSA Conference.


The ILASSA Conference is a space graduate students utilize to present their work and to develop dialogue surrounding relevant issues affecting Latin America. The ILASSA Conference offers students from multiple disciplines at UT Austin as well as other institutions in the United States and abroad the opportunity to present their research in the style and atmosphere of an academic conference. Hosting the conference gives ILASSA a unique opportunity for leadership and a chance to share that special Austin and LLILAS warmth. For the 38th ILASSA Conference we are expecting the attendance of 100 guests including keynote speakers, panelists, and participants from UT Austin, other institutions in the United States, and around the globe.


We still have 12 days to raise our goal of $5,700! Will you help us reach our goal? A gift of any amount would be a big help.


Thank you for your support!

We, the ILASSA Conference Organizers, would like to take the time and thank everyone that has made a donation so far! We have raised 9% of our goal in this past week. We would like to give a special thanks to an anonymous donor who made a contribution of $300. We would also like to thank the Chair of LLILAS, Dr. Virginia Garrard, for her donation of $100. In addition, we would like to thank Dr. Lorraine Leu, Sara Law, Laura Park, and all the donors that have chosen to remain anonymous. Your contributions get us a step closer to producing a conference that allows for the growth of our graduate student Latin Americanist community. 


If you have not done so yet, please consider making your donation today, and sharing this opportunity with your friends and family. Every dollar counts! Help us push boundaries, cross borders to build bridges with others, and facilitate connections across intellectual areas of gender, politics, sexuality, immigration, and beyond!


Thanks again,
