Young Scholars Symposium
The Young Scholars Symposium is an annual ILS initiative that convenes young scholars who are working on a dissertation, a book, or another research project related to Latinas and Latinos in the United States. Participants are chosen through a national call for applicants. Selected young scholars present a chapter or essay in advance of the symposium. The Distinguished Visiting Professor – who ILS also brings to campus annually – serves as mentor and commentator for symposium participants and their work. ILS faculty members and graduate students also participate in the symposium sessions. The goal is to create an enriching environment that provides mentorship in the profession and helps make good scholarly work even better.
