The Stone Center for Latin American Studies offers Tulane undergraduate and graduate students, and their colleagues from other universities, the exciting opportunity to spend part of summer vacation exploring the beauty and richness of Latin America. Currently our programs invite students to Brazil, Argentina, Costa Rica, Cuba, and Guatemala, and offer 6-10 Tulane credit hours. All of the Stone Center’s summer programs are designed to bring the participants closer to the region’s politics, society, history, and culture through intensive class work and stimulating explorations outside of the classroom.
Non-Tulane students are welcome to apply to our programs. Some programs do not require a language prerequisite. Grades and credits are transferable according to each school’s policies. See our scholarship resources below.

Mining, Privilege, and Artistic Production in the Colonial Andes: Short Film and Roundtable Discussion
This program includes a screening of Harun Farocki's film The Silver and the Cross (20 min), which examines a 1758 painting by Gaspar Miguel de Berrío that depicts the city and the surrounding silver mines of Potosí, Bolivia. A roundtable discussion featuring three local scholars of Colonial Latin America will follow the film. The discussion will employ the film's description of colonial Potosí as an anchor for a broader discussion about colonial Andean economics, history, and art, particularly as it relates to Behind Closed Doors: Art in the Spanish American Home, 1492-1898.
The goal of this event is to better understand the mechanisms that created the level of wealth exhibited in Behind Closed Doors, and to shed light on an often overlooked city that was essential to the economic success of Spanish America for hundreds of years.
The roundtable discussants are Dr. Kris Lane, the France V. Scholes Professor of Colonial Latin American History, Department of History, Tulane University; Dr. John Charles, Associate Professor of Colonial Spanish American Literature and Director of Graduate Studies, Spanish and Portuguese Department, Tulane University; and Dr. Ari Zighelboim, Lecturer, Spanish and Portuguese Department, Tulane University. Lucia Abramovich, NOMA's Curatorial Fellow for Spanish Colonial Art, will moderate the discussion.
