Welcome


The Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS) at Johns Hopkins University seeks to build interdisciplinary understanding among faculty and students of the histories, cultures, societies and politics of countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
PLAS courses enhance the Hopkins curriculum by offering students an opportunity to explore the rich political, aesthetic, intellectual and scientific traditions of Latin America, and by encouraging critical perspectives on Latin America's history and role in the modern world.  Workshops by PLAS- affiliated faculty, graduate students and postdoctoral fellow complement the curriculum with discussions of current events and ongoing research projects.

PLAS offers an undergraduate Major and Minor in Latin American Studies.  The Program encourages undergraduate students to take an active interest in Latin America; in their course work and extracurricular life, and by engaging their other disciplinary and area interests through summer research and study abroad programs in Latin America.

PLAS contributes to the professional training of graduate students through interdisciplinary discussions of ongoing research projects, pre-dissertation summer research travel grants, and student initiated exhibitions, conferences and special events.
