The program in Latin American studies is administered by the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS), a clearinghouse and center of coordination for research, pedagogy, and extracurricular events pertaining to Latin America and its worldwide diasporas. The mission of the Center for Latin American Studies is to foster learning and research across disciplines and geographic boundaries, and to bring the richness of the scholarship on Latin American environment, economics, politics, culture, history, art, language, and literature to the larger Rutgers community. Academic courses, together with visiting writers, film series, concerts, conferences, and lectures, highlight topics in migration, health, environmental issues, human rights and democracy, cultural performance, literary innovation, and linguistic and political change in Latin American and greater hemispheric contexts. The center moves beyond traditional regionalisms towards a more thorough understanding of culture and society throughout the Americas.
