Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies

The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) is a Title VI National Resource Center in consortium with the University of Chicago Center for Latin American Studies funded by the U.S. Department of Education . CLACS houses the Lemann Institute for Brazilian Studies. Established in 2009, the Institute promotes research on Brazil by organizing conferences and offering fellowships; encourages collaborative research between U of I faculty and Brazilian colleagues and supports instruction on Brazil. CLACS offers Master’s, Graduate Minor, and Bachelor’s degrees as well as undergraduate and graduate minors, in Latin American Studies. The Center also offers instruction in Quechua, the most widely-spoken Native American Language, for more than 20 years. Among our many activities, we attract speakers and visiting scholars from Latin America and the Caribbean; organize cultural and educational activities; and sponsor travel and field research for faculty and student. Through colleges and departments across the campus, we seek to support and enlarge an interdisciplinary faculty who maintain an active research agenda and teach courses on Latin American subjects. We sponsor conferences, symposia, colloquia, the Latin American Film Festival and Outreach programs on current affairs and other matters of scholarly and general interest.
