A Note from the LASA2001 Program Chair
by Philip Oxhorn
McGill University


After an all too brief (northern) summer lull in activity, the LASA 2001 Program Office is now up and running at full speed. I am very happy to announce that Gilda Lebron assumed the position of Program Committee Administrator on September 5. The Program Office could not be in more capable hands as the Program Committee begins its principal task: sorting the hundreds of individual paper and panel proposals into what promises to be yet another successful LASA Congress. Those proposals were mailed to the Track Chairs shortly after the October 15 deadline. By early January, they will have screened them, integrating individual paper proposals into panels and vetting requests for travel funding. With that done, the next task is to assemble them into a single program, balancing the various constraints of time, room availability and the needs of LASA’s distinct constituencies for space in the program. A preliminary program will then be completed in early March, at which time participants will be notified by mail of the Program Committee’s decisions. Final decisions on requests for travel funds will come somewhat later, depending on the number of requests and LASA’s limited funds. Recipients will be notified by May 20, 2001.

If you have specific questions regarding the program, you can always contact us:

On behalf of the entire LASA 2001 Program Committee, we are committed to making the next Congress as exciting and intellectually stimulating as previous ones. But to succeed, we ultimately are dependent upon the LASA membership because it is you who propose the vast majority of panels and identify the themes that the Congress will address. We look forward to working with you to make it all happen in Washington next September.
