Roger Thayer Stone Center For Latin American Studies

Tulane University

History

Environment, Ecology, and Health is an historic area of strength that has waxed and waned over time, as it struggled to maintain a critical core of faculty with shared research interests in Latin America. Today, this cluster provides critical support to two of the universityâ’‘¬’“¢s strategic areas of concentration, and new faculty in biology, political science, sociology, law, and public health provide new energy and direction to this program, which has focused historically on the analysis of regional tropical and subtropical environments.

It is not required to have participated in past institutes to join us.

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University is excited to host and coordinate this year’s institute.
