Tulane is home to the Roger Thayer Stone Center for Latin American Studies, the Middle American Research Institute, the Latin American Library and a particular concentration of faculty in numerous fields  specializing in Latin America.  The New Orleans Museum of Art and the Middle American Research Institute both hold important collections of objects and archives of interest to scholars.
