British Association for American StudiesAs of 1 August, the Institute for the Study of the Americas will change to focus solely on Latin America and the Caribbean, and will cease to support the study of North America.

As a result, the Institute will be changing its name to the Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS).

Please find attached a letter from Professor Linda Newson, Director of the Institute for the Study of the Americas at the School of Advanced Study, University of London, outlining these changes and the background to them. I would be grateful if you take a few minutes to read this letter to understand these changes.

With effect from 1 August 2013, the Institute’s website will be http://ilas.sas.ac.uk and our email address will be ilas@sas.ac.uk
