About us

This is the official website of the Latin American Society Academic Subcommittee!

We are part of the Dundee University Latin American Society and we are dedicated to give Latin America a voice in other parts of the world.

To make navigation in our website easier, below we have provided short descriptions of each tab found above this text:

We hold a monthly Academic Talk online and invite an expert guest speaker to give us more insight into the challenges Latin America faces and possible solutions.

Currently we are holding the Academic Talk Series called Experience of COVID-19 in LATAM.

We are holding an Academic Talk on Understanding the Killing of Social Leaders in Colombia during COVID-19. Our speaker will be Dr Maria del Pilar López-Uribe, who will be providing us with an academic perspective on the recent massacres in Colombia.

This is the project we worked on for 16 weeks – from the 21st of April to the 3rd of August, 2020. We remotely collected information on 11 different Latin American countries to follow and monitor the trends and action plans set in place as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic in a weekly basis.

Here you will find the weekly infographic or video we created and shared on our social media regarding the situation of COVID-19 in these Latin American countries: Mexico, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Colombia, Bolivia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil and Chile.
