NYU’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies has been home to the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA) since 2012. The partnership builds on shared commitments to cultivating research and scholarship on Latin America and the Caribbean and engaging wider communities with information and resources on the region. The relationship provides NACLA a base at NYU while affording CLACS students unique opportunities to benefit from NACLA’s resources, publishing platform, and employment opportunities.
NACLA has been a valued source of research, news, and foreign policy analysis on Latin America and the Caribbean since 1967. While housed at CLACS, NACLA has continued to produce its esteemed flagship publication—the NACLA Report on the Americas, a quarterly print magazine covering Latin America, the Caribbean, and Latinx communities in the United States—as well as regular online articles. Both the NACLA Report and nacla.org website feature a vast range of new and established voices writing on the region. Since 2016, the NACLA Report is published by Routledge, an imprint of Taylor and Francis.

Research and Resources
NACLA’s archives and ongoing coverage of the region are valuable resources for students studying Latin America and the Caribbean. NACLA articles have frequently appeared on course syllabi over the years, and NYU libraries offer digital access to NACLA’s decades of print archives. For students interested in a deeper dive into NACLA’s history or specific coverage of the region, the magazine’s complete physical archives are located at Tamiment Library at NYU’s Bobst library. With NACLA located in CLACS, students are also welcome to drop by the office to view recent back issues.
In 2020, CLACS inaugurated a photo exhibit displaying images from NACLA’s archives. More than ever, NACLA has a visible presence in CLACS, and the photographs provide an engaging entry point for students to become acquainted with NACLA. The exhibit, curated by CLACS staff, highlights NACLA’s rich history of covering a range of social, economic, and political issues across the region with an eye to daily life on the ground. Students interested in learning more can access NACLA resources or visit the NACLA office directly.
