Presentation

The organizing committee of the 57 edition of the International Congress of Americanists (ICA 2021) has the pleasure of inviting the international scientific community to the celebration that will take place from 19 to 23, July 2021 in the Brazilian city of Foz do Iguaçu, part of the border region with Argentina and Paraguay. Based on the central motto “America and its borders: multiple voices, multiple encounters”, teachers, students and researchers from at least 80 countries will have the opportunity to socialize their knowledge, to exchange experiences and to live excellent moments of interculturalism in one of the most unique areas of the entire American continent.

America and its borders… It is also an appeal to collective reflection on historical and contemporary phenomena in different fields of knowledge relating to the continental space, both in terms of their internal dialogues and in relation to their relations with others Regions of the planet. In this scenario ICA 2021 proposes to honor and broaden the scientific capital of this Congress which, since 1875, contributes enormously to the understanding of the cultural and material expressions of human beings and their diverse environments. Thus, the Midwestern State University (Unicentro, Brazil) leading a group of institutions from several countries, has the satisfaction of inviting all for the presentation of proposals within one of the 21 thematic axes that integrate ICA 2021.
