CLAS Student Research Reports, Summer 2020

The Center for Latin American Studies offers grants for field research to graduate students during the summer. In turn, those students report on their activities and findings. Selections of that research are published below, and occasionally in the Berkeley Review of Latin American Studies. Older reports are available at, or under the drop-down menu above to the right.
