The Institute for the Study of the Americas promotes, coordinates and provides a focus for research and postgraduate teaching on the Americas – Canada, the Caribbean, Latin America and the United States – in the University of London.
SLAS was founded in 1964 and is one of the leading Latin American studies organizations in Europe. They hold an annual conference in March/April, an Annual Lecture and publish the Bulletin of Latin American Research (BLAR).
The LAC was founded in 1964 by St. Antony’s College and maintains its close links with St. Antony’s today. It became a University centre in 1965 on the recommendations of a government review of Latin American studies in the United Kingdom. The main aims of the Centre are to educate graduate students in a range of disciplines applied to Latin America; to promote research on Latin America; to support a research library; to bring students and academics from Latin America to the University; and to organize seminars, lectures, workshops and conferences on Latin America.
Located in central London, the Institute of the Americas has the largest programme of postgraduate teaching, research and events on the Americas in the UK, covering Latin America, the United States, the Caribbean and Canada.
