1.Overview of the 2021 Institut des Amériques Congress
Each year since 2002, the Institut des Amériques (IdA) organizes an international colloquium on a flagship theme: consult the entire list online. With a view to diversifying themes and to promoting the widest possible dialogue in inter-American and comparative studies, IdA has now decided to organize a biennial Congress that will be ambitious, pleasant, open to cultural events, sensitive to the new social sciences paradigms, as well as to knowledge transfer into public policy. In 2021, the Congress will be held on September 22, 23 and 24 on the Condorcet Paris-Aubervillers campus, in Aubervilliers. Aiming to encourage interdisciplinary approaches as much as possible, this event will bring together specialists from the United States, Canada, South America and the Caribbean.
