nexo: CLACS newsletter

We title our publication nexo, meaning a hub, core, center, and point of connection: the name reflects our hope that the Center for Latin America and Caribbean Studies at NYU be a nexus, a network of people and information, and a meeting place where knowledge and understanding are created and exchanged. A leader in contemporary area studies programs and a recognized National Resource Center, CLACS at NYU offers these synopses of highlights from previous semesters.
