Berkeley Latin American History - BLAH

The UC Berkeley Latin American History Working Group is a group of graduate students and faculty interested in Latin American history seeking to build an intellectual community of historians and historically-minded scholars from other disciplines. We host twice-monthly working group sessions with presentations of article-length papers or chapter selections from larger projects near publication from advanced students and professors that contribute to discussions of important themes, questions, and theoretical concerns in Latin American history. Each session's discussion focuses on an unpublished paper, article, or chapter distributed to the participants before the seminar reading.

We are especially interested in topics related to transnational history, Latin America and the U.S., urban studies, migration, and comparative political movements. We seek to incorporate graduate students from outside departments such as Sociology, Anthropology, Geography, City Planning, Political Science, and Latin American Studies. By fostering a collegial environment and promoting intellectual exchange among early and advanced graduate students, Berkeley faculty, and scholars from outside fields and universities, we aim to create a cohesive community working together to deepen our understanding of Latin American history.
