We are excited to announce the launch of Contextos, the blog of the Center for Latin American Studies at UChicago. This blog is intended to provide students, faculty, alumni, associate members, and friends with an interactive space for sharing knowledge, research news, professional projects, and engaging stories and photographs about Latin America and the Caribbean. As the name denotes, Contextos intends to reflect the heterogeneity of the region as seen through a variety of disciplinary lenses, as well as to capture the contrasting political, economic, and social realities that Latin Americans encounter in their lives. In this initial stage, we will feature one entry per month. We encourage everyone in our community to participate and share their experiences in this new space.
The contents of this blog do not necessarily reflect the views of the Center for Latin American Studies or the University of Chicago.
