PHOTO CONTEST LASA 2015 / Precariedades, exclusiones, emergencias.

PHOTO CONTEST LASA2015 / Precariedades, exclusiones, emergencias. 

The Latin American Studies Association (LASA) invites you to submit photos reflecting upon social, cultural, and educational conflicts, and the increasing precariousness of life in 21st century Latin America. In particular, we seek images that reflect social and labor issues affecting Latin Americans; the realities of class, gender, sexual identity, age, and racial exclusion; and images that portray the diverse forms of agency that emerge in these social, political, economic, and cultural processes, seen in events such as the recent mobilization of millions in Brazil, the growing environmental crisis and its effects on local communities, the plight of undocumented immigrants in the United States, and student protests against privatization of public education of the past years.

The image chosen will be used on the congress book and App of LASA2015- Precariedades, Exclusiones, Emergencias along with any other LASA2015 advertisement/posters.  The photographer selected will receive full credit for their picture with their names printed in the program book.
