Students at the Latin American Institute
At the LAI, the faculty represent the field of history in its entire breadth. We strive to cover the period from 1492 to the present as well as the many regions of Hispanic America, from northern Mexico and Tierra del Fuego to the Caribbean and Brazil. In addition, we offer interdisciplinary courses with the participation of the LAI’s other subject areas. Our comparative and transregional seminars, including those in cooperation with the John-F. Kennedy-Institut for North American Studies, go beyond the region of Latin America.
