LASI Summer School
LASI is a Research Summer School directed at graduate students and other highly qualified young researchers who hold at least a master’s degree. LASI offers graduate students from Latin America and abroad the opportunity to come together for a week to receive specialized instruction and supervision from internationally renowned senior social scientists. LASI is located in Villarrica in the Araucanía, the heartland of the encounter between the Mapuche people, colonos of European descent, and the Chilean state. LASI focuses on relevant social issues in Latin America, which are analyzed from a global, interdisciplinary, and compared perspective.
This year (2018) LASI will take place between January 4th – 9th, 2018 at Campus Villarrica at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
LASI brings together social science graduate students from different disciplines, countries, and universities across Latin America, North America, and Europe. In addition to academic training the Summer School offers an opportunity to establish an international network of contacts with other researchers from different disciplines and universities, which will allow the students to exchange knowledge and experiences in their future research trajectory.
LASI is an initiative launched in Chile by the Center for Intercultural and Indigenous Research (CIIR), Center for Latin American Studies and Department of Anthropolgy at Stanford University and the Instituto de Antropología y Arqueología of San Pedro de Atacama (IAA) at Universidad Católica del Norte, Chile.
