About us

The Latin American society aims to introduce and preserve Latin American culture and traditions and highlight the main issues these countries are currently facing in terms of development.

We wish to unite all Latin American students through cultural, social and academic activities, as well as students who are curious to discover more about this continent!

South American students in LSE are spread out and rarely know each other, we therefore aim to bring them together by organising dance classes, traditional food/drink tasting events and talks/conferences.

Inclusion is very important to us and we are eager to welcome all nationalities as well as organise co-events with the other societies (French/Nordic etc) to create multi-cultural events!

This year we want to start a student-led research portal called the LSE Latin American Policy Review to showcase student research in Latin American topics, extending from politics and economics to law and sociology.


A standard membership: £2. By purchasing a membership you will receive information on all ongoing social, cultural and academic events, allowing you to attend them and create tight bonds and friendships with other students.
