As we embark on a new semester, CLACS is thrilled to welcome the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA) to NYU! NACLA is most widely known for its quarterly journal, NACLA Report on the Americas. the oldest and most widely read progressive magazine offering comprehensive analysis of Latin America and its relationship with the United States. NACLA has moved its offices to CLACS-NYU, and we anticipate many new opportunities for work, research, and collaboration for the NYU community and for the NACLA readership at large.
Greg Grandin, NYU Professor of History and Pulitzer Prize finalist, will soon begin a three-year term as the new Executive Editor of the NACLA Report on the Americas. Greg’s passion for social justice in Latin America has long motivated his scholarly work, writing, and advocacy, and we’re thrilled to bring him to the helm of NACLA Report on the Americas as it enters its 46th year.
NACLA will also be actively involved in supporting the work of CLACS students. In addition to their generous donation of over 300 unique books, articles, and other documents to Bobst Library, NACLA is offering part-time work and internship opportunities to CLACS students. We are excited and certain that the partnership between CLACS and NACLA will be mutually beneficial moving forward.
To celebrate this new partnership, NACLA’s staff and board, along with CLACS students, faculty, and staff, will be toasting to the new partnership, the beginning of the Spring 2013 semester, and presenting the Winter 2012 issue on elections in the Americas. The CLACS/NACLA launch party will be on Wednesday, February 6th, from 6-9 pm, in the King Juan Carlos Center Auditorium at 53 Washington Square South. The event is open to the public with RSVP.
Last but not least, NACLA is offering subscriptions to NACLA Report on the Americas for a discounted rate to NYU students: $25/year (regular price is $36). Email NACLA at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Welcome, NACLA, and thank you for your contributions!
