The conference will include panels, proposed and organized by CILAS-UCSD, on indigenous
peoples and natural resources (land, water, trees and forests, herbs, oil, natural gas, and other
resources). We encourage other institutions such as regional or country-focused scholarly
associations and university departments, to propose "sponsored panels" organized by the
institution, involving their members and receiving their imprimatur.

any topic related to ethnicity, race relations, Indigenous peoples, Afro-descendants and other
ethnic or racial groups in Latin America and the Caribbean. The committee accepts electronic
submissions only. Proponents should fill in an Individual Paper Proposal Form or, in the case of
