ENCUENTRO aims at bringing together people with an interest in Latin American cultures, economies, politics and histories in their many aspects and from a critical perspective. By creating a network that reaches through and beyond academia, we want to keep in touch on what moves the continent’s past, present & future and raise interest in Latin America in Belgian society.

The ENCUENTRO Kick-Off is a collaboration of ENCUENTRO, AMSAB and KADOC, with the support of UGent History Department and Modernity and Society, 1800-2000 (KU Leuven).
