Welcome to the Latin American & Caribbean Studies Center

The LACS (Latin American and Caribbean Studies) Center at SUNY-Stony Brook serves to enhance and focus the interests of students, faculty, graduate students and the larger New York regional community concerned with Latin American and Latino issues. Stony Brook--New York’s premier public research university--is home to internationally-recognized scholarship on the Americas, and in recent years the LACS Center has become our interdisciplinary base for deepening ties with the region. Stony Brook attracts growing numbers of Latino/a students from the New York metropolitan area and myriad Latin American-(ist) graduate students from across the disciplines--from Hispanic Languages and Mathematics to History and Sociology. The LACS mission goes beyond traditional “Area Studies”: it is to connect our diverse local interests around Latino and Latin American issues to dynamic global scholarship and developments across our Hemisphere.
