As incoming Director of the LAS program, I welcome you all into the 2015 / 16 academic year. Join us in welcoming back Prof. Victor Rivas, who will be teaching LAS200H and LAS201H (previously LAS200Y1), as well as LAS301H. Prof. Juan P. Marsiaj will join us again to teach LAS300H1, a very popular course with students last year. We are also very happy to welcome Daniela Lev-Aviv, our Acting Coordinator, who will be replacing Berenice Villagómez during her leave. Daniela is a recent graduate of our program, so she brings a wealth of knowledge of LAS, as well as UofT experience to share! We are excited to begin the year in our new offices on the fifth floor of the Jackman Humanities Building, right across the street from the St. George TTC station. As always, students are at the heart of the LAS mission. We hope to see you at our events throughout the academic year. These are great opportunities for dialogue within the Latin American Studies community between undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, post-doctoral fellows and visitors. We hope the academic year brings you exciting challenges and productive collaborations, and that you enjoy participating in our LAS program. Sincerely, Susan Antebi LAS Director Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! Bem-vindos!
