Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies


The Latin American Interdisciplinary Gender Network brings together faculty, scholars, postdoctoral researchers, and doctoral students across universities throughout the United States and Latin America. Our members work within the broad field of gender studies, including – but not limited to - feminist, queer, and decolonial theories. Their research interests encompass a wide array of disciplines from the social sciences and humanities to the natural sciences and technology.

The Network’s main objective is to produce bilingual academic and cultural scholarship to create knowledge and provide solutions to gender-related issues from a variety of perspectives in the following focus areas:

  •  Gender and Education
  • Gender and Feminism Theory
  •  Gender, Economy, Poverty, and Health
  • Gender in the Arts and Humanities
  • Gender in Science, Technology, and Innovation

The inaugural conference for the network was held via Zoom on Friday, November 20, 2020. Please go here to see the conference program: Gender Studies in the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities in the Americas. An in-person conference is also being planned for November 2021 at UNAM in Mexico City.
