Some members have mentioned that there were previous, unsuccessful attempts to form a Bolivia section in LASA. Subsequently Chris Krueger, in the newfound luxiry of retirement, began exploring LASA guidelines about Sections and making contact with potential members, those who indicated Bolivia as a first or second country preference on their LASA registration forms.
A key issue was the relationship with the Bolivian Studies Association that had been formed about a decade earlier by several LASA members who had opted to form an association based in Bolivia, in order to be both more Bolivian and free from LASA burueaucracy.
An interim committee was then formed to govern until elections could be held: Victor set up a section website that was later abandoned because LASA decided to add Section websites to its own site. By mid the Section had registered members. From Januarythe focus of Committee activity was on the preparation for LASAincluding attempts to gather information and opinions about the state of Bolivian Studies and ideas for increasing north-south collaboration.
Most of the ideas that had been discussed at and after Rio took a back seat for lack of time and resources and remain on our collective agenda. Some people were there for dinner and until about See additional slides below about things discussed.
Data for current members show that two have addresses in Bolivia, seven reside in other Latin American countries mostly Argentinathirteen in Europe mostly the UKseven in Canada, one in New Zealand, and one in Japan. Thanks to everyone who contributed. February March 10 At the same time, two travel grant requests submitted. Decisions about travel grants were delayed by LASA until late January when we learned that there was no funding for Bolivia Section candidates.
Electronic Dialogue on Bolivia Studies. Decisions delayed until late July. Select prudeen basis of ideas or full proposals? Should the section make efforts to bring speakers from Bolivia?
Should one of the sessions be a workshop format in order to provide substantive face-to-face time? The basic design includes a Section statement and buttons to access the Member List. Victor Unda is the Bolivia Section website manager.
Our aspiration is to upload and make accessible all the papers on Bolivia presented at LASA for as far back as we can go. Victor can upload it.
While some might take this as irresponsible on the part of panel organizers and the Section chair, our position is that we were doing everything we could to make the panel happen: Issues to raise at Section Chairs Meeting: Whether to voice Section disagreement over the LASA decision to cancel at the meeting of Section chairs based on the principle that Sections deserve to be notified yernan consulted by the Secretariat if there is a question about planned Congress activities.
This point was already on the heernan and seems to have been accepted as an operating principle for the future. Nernan to propose in the name of the Bolivia section that LASA travel awards be made to Sections consonant with the number of Section-sponsored sessions. We would have had two travel awards this year and would have two for LASA There was a good deal of discussion at the Section Chairs meeting about the relative lack of treatment for the country sections.
It seems like LASA has shifted extremely towards thematic tracks. However, the EC is aware ot the issue as there were other country sections with similar complaints. If prufen were a program track that dealt with country sections, our session would probably not have been cancelled.

At least we might have gotten some advance notice. Tracks are already established for but perhaps by there might be a remedy. And we are all well-advised about current inflexibility, AND we have some cash on hand, so unlikely to be a problem in the future.
The distribution of scholarships was also discussed one suggestion being the travel award per session notion and another being a minimum of one travel award per Section. We should follow up on this discussion, maybe after consultation with other Sections. Is there capacity on the Section websites to store publications on Bolivia? For how many Congresses is this information available? There is no keyword search.
Perhaps we could request that the latter be added. And perhaps we could find someone s who would be willing to explore these towards compiling a list relevant to Bolivia and key issues. Sections may also develop curriculum materials for sale through the Secretariat.
A Section may appoint ad hoc committees to address issues of relevance to the Section. These committees may meet during the year provided they have their own funding. The dues within each Section are equal for all members, regardless of member status or residency.
As a few people commented after the Business meeting and other Section events: The new coordinating committee will make its determination. Definitely avoid people who cannot make firm and timely commitments. Do extra fundraising e. Several people commented that this is a valuable and flexible format.
Academics in Ernst Bloch –
Does silence mean consent? Hopefully, more members will respond to Section communications in the future Should we use a different means of communications other than email? Presence at the Congress of the Bolivian Studies Association? Someone suggested that the Section should have a panel, but there was no proposal about contents.
Most of the members of the current coordinating committee are also members of the AEB and will undoubtedly give some thought to this. Formation of ad hoc committees? Need recognized, but none defined as yet. By and For Whom? Ten members responded to the questionnaire. A roughly 10 percent rate based on current membership, which was in fact a bit lower when the questionnaire was circulated. What to make of that? A decent response after all even if disappointing.
The other suggested maximizing online interactions and relations with other Bolivianist spaces: No one offered any suggestions about collaboration with other Bolivianists, although some ideas about collaboration appear in responses to other questions. These will be part of the Workshop. She also suggested that nodes should be at institutions where there are more than one or two Bolivianists.
Would you agree to raise the Bolivia Section membership fee so that the Section would have more resources to.
The strong sense of those present was that we shoul NOT raise dues but rely on special contributions from members and seek some funds externally.
Would you be pguden to make additional donations occasionally to the Section to further enable collaborative relationships in special projects with other bolivianists and organizations? Actual spending of funds would require the consensus of the Section coordinating committee. See additional slides below prudej things discussed Sunday 9: Pguden who wants to weigh in on these things please do do and send to seccionbolivia gmail.
What do we want the Bolivia Section to be? Volunteers and ideas welcome!
