Roger Thayer Stone Center For Latin American Studies

Tulane University

Latin American Resource Center

If you are a faculty member or graduate student who is a part of Latin American Studies or any of its affiliated departments, you can volunteer to go into local classrooms and community organizations to give an engaging presentation on a Latin American topic. It is a unique opportunity for Tulane faculty and scholars to practice their teaching skills while serving local K-12 schools and the general community.

Becoming a Visitor Speaker should be part of everyone’s enrollment and participation in the Stone Center for Latin American studies. It is a chance for you to showcase your knowledge and expertise in your particular area of study, while helping an area classroom or community group learn more about the region.

In the past, speakers have discussed a wide array of subjects such as music and culture, Cuban drumming, the Mexican revolution, Capoeira Angola, etc. Visiting Speakers are generally utilized once or twice a semester and are always given three weeks advance notice. Presentations usually last about one hour.
