Latin American & Latinx Studies

The Latin American and Latinx Studies Program provides a multidisciplinary approach to the study of the history, cultures, geography, politics, literatures, and economics of Latin America and the Caribbean, along with Latinx populations elsewhere in the Americas and the world.

The LALS Program allows students to explore the multiplicity of cultures in Latin America and among Latinx populations in ways that acknowledge the permeability and permutations of national borders. Our courses emphasize knowledge of cultures, societies, global politics, economies, and nations as they are lived, remembered, and theorized in Latin America and Latinx communities.
