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, Spain and Portugal. 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 a weekly lecture series, sponsors research abroad, coordinates outreach programs, convenes international conferences, and edits conference results for scholarly publication.
