Building on its traditional strengths in Latin American Studies, Tulane University has emerged as a prominent institution of higher education in the area of Brazilian Studies. Tulane faculty with scholarly interests in Brazil has grown considerably in the last several years and currently has representation in most disciplinary fields of the social sciences and humanities. Several departments of the School of Liberal Arts, including Spanish and Portuguese, Communication, History, Music, Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science, and Economics have faculty members whose research and teaching interests relate to Brazil. In 1999 interested faculty formed the Brazilian Studies Council with the mission to develop and coordinate Brazil-related teaching and research at Tulane University. In March 2008, Tulane University hosted the IX Congress of the Brazilian Studies Association.

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute at Tulane University are proud to announce a two-week summer educator institute exploring the geography, culture and history of Cuba. For an educator, Cuba is rich with lessons to bring into the classroom. This program highlights the important historical and cultural connections between the United States and Cuba. Participants will explore key sites and meet local experts and artists who will provide unique insight for educators who teach such subjects as U.S./Latin American Relations, World Geography, World History, and Spanish among others. Come and visit the site of the historic Bay of Pigs, explore Milton Hershey’s sugar plantation and hear firsthand about the Cuban national literacy campaign from the teachers themselves.
