The UCL Americas Research Network is pleased to present the 4th Annual Conference of the Americas Research Network: Intersections in the Americas held at UCL Institute of the Americas and other venues from 2-4 May, 2018.

We are pleased to announce three Keynote Speakers: Dr Kate Quinn (University College London), Dr Jelke Boesten (King’s College London), Dr. Althea Legal-Miller (Canterbury Christ Church University).

The Americas Research Network welcomes proposals on any aspect related to the theme of Intersections in the Americas, covering a range of periods and regions in the hemisphere. Papers of an interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome and we invite current postgraduate students and early career researchers to apply.

This year's conference theme draws on contemporary issues of division in the geopolitical, societal and domestic spheres. Today, the need to interrogate the concept of intersections between peoples, nations, cultures etc. is increasingly clear.
