CLAS is committed to promoting innovative scholarship and interdisciplinary discussions through the Council on Advanced Studies graduate workshops. We regularly support regionally-focused workshops by providing them with space, administrative support, and supplementary funding. We currently support the following workshops:

Latin American History Workshop           

The Latin American History Workshop at the University of Chicago is a forum for the discussion of novel approaches to Latin American history.  It aims to develop wide comparative historical perspectives and to examine methods and techniques from a variety of disciplines. Presentations cover a broad temporal, geographical, and disciplinary range from early colonial to contemporary times throughout Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America.

Alternate Thursdays, 4:30–6 pm

Workshop on Latin America and the Caribbean

The Workshop on Latin America and the Caribbean is an interdisciplinary forum and intellectual community for graduate students and faculty whose work and research are focused on Latin America or the Caribbean. The workshop hosts regular presentations of work in progress by students, faculty, and invited guests, as well as special events and gatherings.  Participants come from a wide range of disciplines from across the social sciences and humanities, enabling an interdisciplinary conversation and exchange around questions of common interest to those whose work focuses on the region.
