Occasional Papers

About the Occasional Papers Series

In the early 1960s, Vanderbilt’s Center for Latin American Studies (before it was even known as such) began providing a forum for academics to share their research and writing.  This venue, the  Occasional Papers Series, gave visibility to conference papers and pre-publication works pertaining to Latin America.  With a general renewal of interest in Latin America, correlated with the growth of CLAS and its attainment of Title VI National Resource Center status, the Center for Latin American Studies is now pleased to renew the Occasional Papers Series.

If you are seeking an opportunity to vet and share your current academic work, CLAS is now accepting paper submissions for review and potential inclusion in the  Occasional Papers Series.  For further information, or to make a submission, direct e-mails to clas@vanderbilt.edu.
