Join us to discuss how the global South has been leading current shifts in the politics of gender, sex and sexualities. We seek to engage participants in conversations on South-North relations or North-South polarities regarding: marriage, families, adoption, labor, child rearing, children’s rights, reproductive rights, poverty, migration, sex and gender discrimination, transsexual communities and sexual identities as well as other related themes.

Special Events & Monthly Calendar

The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) provides a calendar of events at the beginning of each month. It contains a variety of events, call for papers, job postings, etc.

Cuba has been reforming, or been at the brink of a reform period, perhaps since the revolution. With an aging leadership and now decades-long economic struggles, the pace of change, however, has finally accelerated. Today Cubans can open small businesses, travel abroad, access the internet, and purchase cell phones, microwaves, and (very expensive) new cars.

The annual Latin American Social and Public Policy conference features presentations on social and public policy research in Latin America by students from the University of Pittsburgh and other universities, with comments by University of Pittsburgh faculty.

Featuring music, food, dance, arts, crafts, and children's activities from Latin America and the Caribbean.

For 50 years, CLAS has been dedicated to supporting the study of Latin America's history, cultures, and societies and the continuing challenges and triumphs that the region has experienced. Its primary mission is to develop experts on Latin America who will apply their language skills and knowledge of the countries of the region in their professional careers.
