Latin American, Iberian, and Latina/o Studies
- Prospective students: Check out the Latin American, Iberian, and Latina/o Studies page in Majors, Minors, and Concentrations
Latin American, Iberian, and Latino peoples, histories, and cultures have represented both central agents and crucibles of transformations across the entire world for millennia. Global histories and local experiences of colonization, migration, exchange, and revolution allow students and faculty to construct a critical framework of analysis and to explore these dynamic worlds, their peoples and cultures, across many disciplines. LAILS examines the whole culture or civilization, not only throughout the humanities and fine arts, but also throughout the social sciences and history. This allows students to explore a variety of topics such as the anthropology, history, architecture, and political life of Latino, Iberian, and Latin American communities.
