Transdisciplinary and Transnational Research
The Gastón Institute promotes research on Latino immigration that integrates two or more disciplinary and geographical perspectives. The Andrés Torres Paper Series is a grant award for the preparation of a scholarly manuscript focused on the connections between immigration, community formation, and transnational linkages. Our Brazilian Transnational Project has facilitated short-term visits of scholars from Brazil, Cuba, and Spain, working on comparative studies. In addition we have a research and teaching partnership with the University of Quintana Roo in Mexico.
