Bemvindos! ¡Bienvenidos! Welcome! The Amazonia Section of the Latin American Studies Association aims to enhance the visibility of the cultural, political, social, economic, and environmental processes that engage and affect Amazonian peoples, plants, animals, and ecosystems throughout the basin. The section fosters interdisciplinary dialogue across the humanities and the social and natural sciences, and promotes research, teaching, and outreach. We support collaboration among LASA members, Indigenous and local community leaders, activists, artists, and knowledge producers in the Amazon. We seek to inform civil society and public policy with current, robust, and collaborative research in order to learn from the region's experiences and to face pressing challenges. We are a new and growing section of more than 100 members across disciplines including anthropology, history, sociology, political science, geography, and literary and cultural studies. Join us!
