The Center for Latin American Studies Faculty


With over 100 faculty spanning eleven departments and nine schools, CLAS is the largest and most active interdisciplinary center on Vanderbilt’s campus. Over 17% of arts and science faculty have a Latin American studies focus. We have core LAS faculty in anthropology, history, political science, and Spanish and Portuguese, as well as in economics, English, history of art, and sociology. We collaborate substantively with every school of the university: College of Arts and Sciences, Blair School of Music, Divinity School, School of Engineering, Law School, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, Owen Graduate School of Management, and the Peabody College of Education and Human Development.
