Professor of Education
Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile
Dear members of the APIKS community: Welcome to APIKS Chile conference! The APIKS Chile team is delighted to host another in the highly fruitful series of APIKS conferences. The theme could not be more timely: “The academic profession moving forward: gender equality and early career researchers.”
Our host institution, Universidad de Tarapacá, boasts one of the most enthusiastic staff of higher education scholars in Chile and Latin America. The city of Arica, the northernmost regional capital in the country, only 23 km (14 miles) from the border with Peru, is a university town with outstanding historical significance. Among other attributes, it is home to the most ancient mummies in the world, those of the Chinchorro culture, 7,000 years BC.
On behalf of the APIKS Chile team, we look forward to welcoming you and continuing the excellent APIKS work in Arica, Chile.
