Center for Hispanic and Latinx Studies


The Center for Hispanic and Latinx Studies (HLx) celebrates the political, social and cultural contributions of the 55 million Hispanic and Latinx individuals currently living in the United States. This plurality of experiences and identities is reflected in our center’s name, which seeks social justice for the peoples under its umbrella and beyond. Learning and teaching Spanish in the United States is a political act. Our courses and our academic stance reflect this mission and have been designed for the 21st century student. They include courses with on-line components, in which students Skype with native Spanish speakers living abroad; or with community-based learning components, in which students interact and learn with local Latino community on campus and in Baltimore. We offer courses cross-listed with departments and programs such as History, Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Peace Studies, Sociology, Education, Environmental Studies, and World Literature, and a wide variety of Intensive Courses Abroad (ICA) in Argentina, Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Perú and. Spain. We also teach language and Latin American Studies courses in the Goucher Prison Education Program (GPEP). In its commitment to social justice, the HLx will serve as a source of support and mentorship to bilingual, second language learners, international, heritage and native speakers of other languages.
