Each calendar year LAPES selects a theme relevant to contemporary Latin American philosophy of education and publishes a special edition of our journal, LÁPIZ. International scholars and teaching professionals are frequently invited to contribute. Texts are published in Spanish, Portuguese, or English. The journal is available in print as well as via the LAPES website.
In addition to the journal, we organize and publish individual essays, edited volumes, and other scholarly works.
