The Latino Studies Section and this web page are open to all LASA members and
anyone else interested in promoting research, teaching and advocacy on U.S.
Latino communities and their trans-national connections to their countries of
origin.The Latino Studies Section of LASA, established in 1997, formalizes within
the academic community the study of the interactions of the various Latin
American populations as they come together in the United States. Rather than
focusing on the experience of a single Latino national constituency, the Section
promotes the exchange of ideas regarding the interaction among Latino groups as
well as their relationships with the U.S.Through our work we hope to foster a continuing dialogue regarding the
relationships between Latino Studies and Latin American Studies
will help guide you to information about the trans-national populations in the
hemisphere, and the impact of their political, economic and socio-cultural
activities on the development of the nations of the Americas.Like the building of hemispheric solidarity, this web page is an ongoing
collaborative, transnational, political, and cultural project. Please feel free
to send us information to contribute toward building bridges throughout the
hemisphere. And, of course, we welcome any comments and suggestions on how to
improve this website.
Remember to re-enroll and pay your section dues! We need your participation in order to develop the Section!
