The Department of Social and Political Sciences at the Universidad Católica del Uruguay (UCU, Montevideo) will host the 2015 Repal conference, in 7-8 July 2015. Juan Bogliaccini (UCU) will chair the local organizing committee, and Ben Ross Schneider (MIT) and Angélika Rettberg (UNIANDES) will serve as program chairs.

Paper proposals (no more than 500 words) should be grounded in solid empirical field research employing whatever methods are appropriate to the research questions. Proposals, papers, and presentations can be in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.
