Mexico hosts Latin American Conference of Social Sciences

Mexico City, Jun 7 (Prensa Latina) The 9th Latin American and Caribbean Conference on Social Sciences of the CLACSO on Tuesday opens at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) with the attendance of 10,000 professors from the continent and special guests.

The event, with a packed program of 105 activities, 250 panels, 600 round-table debates and a veritable swarm of theoretical and practical issues grouped into what the organizers call 34 axes for analysis and discussion, emphasizes the economic and social inequalities in the region.

This is the largest academic event of the social sciences and humanities in Latin America and the Caribbean, and the opening ceremony will be held today afternoon at UNAM’s historic Nezahualcoyotl Hall, where the region’s main social scientists will be recognized.

Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO) general director Karina Batthyany, Coordinator of Humanities at UNAM Guadalupe Valencia, Undersecretary of Higher Education of Mexico Luciano Concheiro, Head of Government of Mexico City Claudia Sheinbaum, and UNAM rector Enrique Graue Wiechers will participate in the event.

An international book fair on social sciences and humanities with several presentations of authors, and an international film series, will take place in this edition.

The 34 thematic axes are linked to the main theme of the Conference: “Inequalities in Latin America and the Caribbean. Knowledge, struggles and transformations.”

Some of the themes of the first day of debates are feminisms and dissidences; childhood and youth; migrations; care society; gender violence; violence and security policies; agricultural conflicts; peace processes; nature and the environment; access to the city, health and education; science, technology and society; urban conflicts, according to the program.
