Roger Thayer Stone Center For Latin American Studies

Tulane University

Visitor Speaker Bureau

This program brings experts in various fields to the K-12 classroom in the Gulf South region. Faculty and graduate students, who study almost every region and discipline essential to understanding Latin America, volunteer to come talk to classrooms about a variety of subjects. Today, Tulane University has active programs in African and African Diaspora Studies, the Atlantic World, Comparative Southern Studies, and Cuban, Brazilian, and Francophone Caribbean Studies. Nationally, few institutions of Tulane’s size compare in the number of faculty, graduate students, undergraduate majors, library holdings, and support for research dedicated to the support of Latin American studies across the university. The Visitor Speaker Bureau is a service we provide to schools and the community to learn first-hand from key scholars and researchers about the diversity of Latin America.

We encourage schools and organizations that are interested in a visitor speaker to contact us and view the list of speaker topics to learn about how to incorporate this special service into your school or workplace. Whether it is Hispanic Heritage month (September 15 – October 15) or Mardi Gras season, please contact us to arrange for a speaker. The topics available depend on the diverse interests of our faculty and students, so please let us know what topics you might be interested.

For more information, to request a speaker, or to volunteer as a speaker, visit the Visitor Speaker Bureau webpage.
