Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies

The Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies (CLAIS) at The MacMillan Center  seeks to enhance the understanding of Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula through collaborative efforts focused on meaningful partnerships and exchange of ideas and academic research. The Council draws on the strengths of Yale’s pioneering departments of History, Political Science, Anthropology, and Spanish and Portuguese, among others, to offer a broad array of courses, cultural events, scholarly lectures, and academic research. CLAIS organizes several colloquia series, sponsors research abroad, coordinates outreach programs, convenes international conferences, and supports faculty activities and collaborations throughout Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula.
