LAP Research Group
The Latin American Politics (LAP) research group is an informal venue for graduate students working on issues related to Latin American politics to give each other feedback on work in progress and exchange ideas for future research projects. The group meets approximately once a month to discuss a paper (by either a group participant or outside scholar) or to listen to and comment on a practice presentation. Interested students at any stage of their graduate studies are welcome to participate.
