Latin American and Caribbean Studies

A Latin American Studies Centre was founded at the University of Essex in 1968 which has since then been a leading centre in the UK.

Recently renamed the Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, it includes among its resources the Albert Sloman Library's collection of Latin American material (recognised as a national resource) as well as the Essex Collection of Art from Latin America (ESCALA) – the largest such collection in public hands in Europe.

  • Outstanding research over a wide range of disciplines
