Digital gathering of NorLARNet

We invite all of you who make up our Norwegian network of Latin America scholars and researchers, as well as all others interested, to a digital gathering (Zoom). Before the NorLARNet secretariat stop functioning in a few weeks, we want to make visible to all of us who we are today, to take stock of the present situation for Latin American studies and research in Norway, and to discuss how to maintain and strengthen the network.

Background

Since 2008, the Center for Development and the Environment (SUM), University of Oslo, has hosted the secretariat for NorLARNet. Until 2019 it was a national network funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The last year the secretariat has functioned with reduced capacity, funded by SUM. This will be the situation until July 2020. After that, NorLARNet will still exist as a network, but SUM will only be able to provide secretariat functions limited to maintaining a basic website and co-hosting events based on initiatives from researchers in the network. 

 

We hope to see many of you!
