The Latin American Studies Network of Montreal (RÉLAM) is founded on the need to create a space for research and collaboration for the “Latin American community” of Montreal. In the Spring of 2014, a group of professors from four Montreal universities proposed the establishment of a group of Latin American Studies to their social science colleagues who share an interest in Latin America. This appeal met a large and enthusiastic response.
As a diverse metropolis, Montreal serves as an excellent hub for exchanging knowledge on Latin America. The confluence of Anglophone and Francophone academic communities provides an exceptional resource in this regard.
