- ABOUT US
Dear Friends of NACLA,
Happy New Year! And our profound thanks to everyone who donated funds and wrote encouraging notes such that NACLA started 2013–and began its new venture with the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU–inspired, hale, and hearty. Truly, a happy new year. We look forward to an ambitious future agenda of programs, events, digital content, and much more.
Along those lines, NACLA is hiring! We're currently on the hunt for a Director/Publisher who can take us boldly into the next era (see job description here). We are also seeking interns. Please pass the word around your networks.
Finally, we'd like to invite all our supporters to join us at the official NACLA-CLACS launch party on February 6th, 2013. NACLA's staff and board, along with our colleagues at CLACS, will be celebrating our partnership and presenting the Winter 2012 issue on elections in the Americas. We hope that our long-standing supporters will come out to and meet the newest naclistas from the NYU community. Please join us!
An official invitation is in the works, but here are the details so you can put it into your calendars:
