Roger Thayer Stone Center For Latin American Studies

Tulane University

Centers & Institutes

The Stone Center coordinates the research and teaching activities of over 70 core faculty and 35 affiliated faculty and adjuncts in schools and departments across several Tulane campuses. Except for the professional schools, this is the largest number of faculty associated with any department or program of the university. The Stone Center occupies a 3,500 sq. ft. facility with conference room, lounge, and TA office.

The Center administers interdisciplinary B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. programs in which students may put together curricula selected from several departments or professional schools. Many students have found that such a program gives them flexibility and better access to the full resources of the university than can be had within the confines of a single department. The Stone Center hosts a wide range of conferences, symposia, film series, and other activities. The Center also coordinates a number of the university’s many research and study programs in Latin America.
