SLAS – Society for Latin American Studies
Lucy was President of SLAS, 2011-2013 and remains a key committee member. SLAS is the largest organisation of Latin Americanists in Europe and was founded 50 years ago.

SLAS links scholars across us the UK and beyond and is renowned for its friendliness and habit of looking past academic hierarchies to engage with the thoughts of fellow scholars, be they research students or professors.
