We welcome Bolivia’s 2016 Chevening Scholars to the UK and this event offers each of the eight the opportunity to give a short presentation about their background and planned research.

The meet-up will be followed by an update on A-BS’s council member and Leverhulme Fellow Dr. Kate Maclean’s research on the Burgesía Chola.  Kate spoke to us about her work in February and she has just returned from a research trip to La Paz.

A big part of the A-BS is the connection between individuals in Bolivia and the UK and we feel this event offers members a unique opportunity to engage with young Bolivian scholars at the start of their careers, while catching up with a UK academic with a proven research record.
