Visiting Scholars

With the support of an endowment from the Edward Larocque Tinker Foundation, each year the Center for Latin American Studies hosts senior scholars or professionals from Latin America and/or the Iberian Peninsula to teach and conduct research at the University of Chicago as a Tinker Visiting Professor. Since 1982, this endowment has made it possible for numerous scholars of Mexican history, literature, and the social sciences to come to Chicago.

As of the fall of 2009, each year the Katz Center also hosts a senior faculty member from El Colegio de México and/or visiting scholars from outside institutions on a regular basis.
