About ISLA

The Initiative for the Study of LatinX America (ISLA) works to increase the visibility and impact of research in Latin American, Latine, and Caribbean studies at Rice. It is a campus-wide initiative that seeks to build collaboration on all levels among faculty, students, and staff. This Rice News article provides more information on the background and aims of ISLA.

The initiative receives financial and administrative support from the Department of Modern and Classical Literatures and Cultures, the dean’s office of the School of Humanities, and the Provost.
