The venue of the LAC Conference 2021 is the CCHS. The Centre for Human and Social Sciences (CCHS) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) is a public research institution whose mission is to contribute to the advancement of society by producing and transferring relevant knowledge from the Human and Social Sciences.
Its creation in 2007 has been the most significant step taken by the CSIC in its history in the area of Human and Social Sciences. In fact, the CCHS (the Spanish abbreviation) emerged from the integration of six research institutes:
- Institute of History (IH)
- Institute of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Languages and Cultures (ILC)
- Institute of Language, Literature and Anthropology (ILLA)
- Institute of Economy, Geography and Demography (IEGD)
- Institute of Public Goods and Policies (IPP)
- Institute of Philosophy (IFS)
The research in these Institutes covers a great variety of topics and provides the opportunity for developing multidisciplinary studies.
With more than 500 people working at the CCHS, its main vocation is to encourage scientific research in its 18 departments and its 62 research groups.
