The PILAS JISCMail Forum is accessible at: https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A0=pilas

JISCMail is the ‘National Academic Mailing List Service’, which is designed specifically to facilitate communication and collaboration within the academic community. While the PILAS account was established in the initial stages of PILAS, way back in the 1990s, it fell off the radar and remained inactive for a number of years, until being revived in 2009.

The JISCMail forum is an excellent way for postgraduates to distribute information about regional events and announcements. All PILAS members are invited to post information about relevant events, seminars, training workshops, conferences, grant opportunities, calls for papers, and publications – anything which would be useful for UK postgraduates in the field of Latin American Studies.

We encourage all PILAS members to sign-up and use this fantastic resource!
