The 7th Annual La Academia del Pueblo Latino/a and Latin American Studies Research Conference seeks to deliberately establish connections between the academy, engaged citizens and urban communities. This year's theme is centered on "(De)Colonizing the Mind: Knowledge from the Margins," and invites participants to examine knowledge production taking place in the periphery by marginalized groups actively seeking to promote anti-colonial social justice frameworks and philosophies.
The conference committee invites submissions of abstracts for poster board and panel presentations from junior and senior faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, as well as, community members conducting Latino/a and Latin American initiative research.

The conference organizers are particularly interested in receiving proposals that link one or more of the themes from below:
