The Latin American & Caribbean Studies Center offers a diverse and growing range of activities and projects. Each semester promises a diverse interdisciplinary Speakers series, a thematic Symposium and Art Exhibitions of recent Latin American arts. We work closely with the campus-wide Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations. We are developing innovative programming and outreach at Stony Brook Manhattan, including the NYC Latin American History Workshop “NYCLAHW”, an inter-university project with NYU and Columbia. We lead the effort to create a SUNY-wide network of Latin American scholars and institutes. LACS is initiating academic exchange programs with major research institutions in Latin America--in Mexico, Peru and Argentina--and is a partner in APUNTES, an innovative Latin American social science journal.
