Our Forums for emerging scholars are at the cutting edge of research into the art and visual culture of Latin America. Between 2009 and 2012 CLAVIS organized three Forums with more than 150 researchers from universities in the United States, Latin America, and Europe. These Forums are intended to create an atmosphere of productive exchange between young researchers, making participants aware of new topics and new perspectives, and encouraging the creation of professional networks.

The Forums have been carried out in partnership with the following universities: The University of Texas at Austin, University of London, Essex University, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Universidad de Barcelona, Southern Methodist University, Universidade de São Paulo, and Universidad de San Martín en Buenos Aires.
