The Centre of Latin American Studies was founded in 1966 to promote research and teaching on Latin America in the University.

In addition to offering a taught M.Phil. course in Latin American Studies, and, more recently, doctoral studies, the Centre sponsors research projects, organises conferences and invites scholars from Latin America and universities around the world to speak at weekly open seminars.

The Centre's staff and students are involved in research across a wide range of disciplines, including history, sociology, politics, anthropology, economics, and cultural studies (including literature and the visual arts).
