Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Center for Iberian and Latin American Studies (CILAS) at the University of California San Diego. CILAS has a long and proud tradition as one of the strongest interdisciplinary programs focused on Latin America and the Iberian peninsula in the U.S. We welcome your participation in our Center, whether through attendance at our weekly lecture series, application as a graduate student or Visiting Scholar, or submission of your manuscript for publication in our Sussex Academic Press series. Please browse our website, and if you don’t find what you need, feel free to contact us directly.
