Latino/a Studies has existed at Duke for 15 years, achieving official Program status in Fall 2008, and offering the first introductory course for our undergraduate certificate program in Spring 2009. Prof Antonio Viego is Faculty Director of the Program, though the primary contact for the spring semester is Executive Director, Jenny Snead Williams. The introductory course for the certificate was taught in the fall semester by Prof Claudia Milian, who will offer it again for Fall 2013. The interdisciplinary certificate program, Latino/a Studies in the Global South, allows students to expand on their knowledge of Latino/a communities in the United States by combining courses from across the humanities, social sciences, and professional schools. Several other great courses on Latino/a Studies are also offered this year - be sure to check the Academics - Courses page. We also offer a variety of programming throughout the year, with events, exhibits, and guest speakers covering topics from politics to health to art, and everything in between. We continue our support of faculty and student-led events again in 2012-13, as well as support for conference attendance and research and teaching needs. Our associated DukeEngage program based in Tucson, AZ will run again in Summer 2013, with a focus on immigration, human rights, and policy.
