Welcome dear colleagues to Aotearoa, “land of the long white cloud.” We are very excited to receive your visit for the XII Biennial Conference of the Association of Iberian and Latin American Studies of Australasia (AILASA), hosted by Massey University in Albany, New Zealand, on Sunday 3 – Tuesday 5 July, 2016.

The theme of our AILASA 2016 hopes to stimulate conversations on diverse topics that address change, adaptation, tradition, connections and plans for the future by situating contemporary issues related to Latin America and Spain in a global context that is constantly changing and reconfiguring itself.

This year the Conference is organised by the Spanish Programme in the School of Humanities at Massey University. For more information about us visit here

We hope you take advantage of your visit to get to know more about this amazing country.
