The diverse historical legacy, the cultural richness, and the socioeconomic importance of Latin America make it one of the most fascinating areas of the world to study and explore.
Latin American and Border Studies at Southwestern University is an interdisciplinary program designed to increase understanding of Latin American and Latina/o histories, cultures, languages, economies, and political forms. A central part of the program is the critical evaluation of the ideological borders that constitute nations, states, and peoples, as produced from outside and from within Latin America. Recognizing its location in Central Texas, the program emphasizes the collaboration of a diverse faculty and student body who seek both academic and activist responses to central questions while examining disciplinary approaches to the study of Latin America and Latina/o identities.
