Maria Clara Medina new president of network on Latin American research

News: Aug 29, 2019

Maria Clara Medina, lecturer at the School of Global Studies (SGS), has been elected the new president of CEISAL, the European Council for Latin American Research. She will be the council’s first female president, and will sit on the post from 2019-2022.

CEISAL was founded almost 50 years ago, and consists of 51 members – academic departments for Latin American Studies – from 19 different countries, including Russia.

“This is a major acknowledgement of the high-quality Latin American research that we have been conducting here at the School of Global Studies since 2007,” said Maria Clara Medina.

CEISAL’s main objective is to promote academic freedom and the exchange of thought that would contribute to the development of studies on Latin America in Europe, as well as creating and supporting the necessary conditions for the consolidation of scientific research environments for Latin American Studies in the European universities.

“As president of CEISAL, I will mainly be responsible for strengthening the academic environments in Europe and Russia where Latin American research is carried out, as well as establishing regional networks between the council’s members,” said Maria Clara Medina.

“More concretely, it will be my responsibility to see that the collaboration with REDIAL (European Network of Information and Documentation on Latin America) is resurrected and to stimulate recruitment of new European members, including the Humanities and arts departments. I will also plan the next CEISAL conference, which will take place in Helsinki in 2022, and prepare the celebration of CEISAL’s 50th anniversary.”
