The Centre of Latin American Studies (CLAS) acts as a facilitator and promoter of research and research-led teaching on Latin America in the major arts, humanities and social science disciplines throughout the University. CLAS provides a synergistic, supportive research community of staff, postgraduate students, and external visitors, and each year funds or contributes part funding towards several conferences, symposia, seminars, visiting researchers, film screenings and art exhibitions. Five Modern Languages colleagues (Boldy, Kantaris, O'Bryen, Page, Segre) work actively with the Centre, have organized conferences or symposia with the Centre’s financial and logistical support within the census period, and supervise PhD research in the Centre.
