Ibero-American Centre (IAC)
Ibero-American Centre (IAC) at Metropolitan University Prague is a platform for research and expertise encouraging interdisciplinary examination of the Americas. The Centre was founded in 2009 to promote research and teaching on the Americas in the University.
The Centre's staff and students are involved in research across a wide range of disciplines, including history, international relations, politics, anthropology, economics, and cultural studies. We at IAC approach the Americas as a politically, historically and culturally differentiated and complex region with different levels of implication in the international arena.
In addition to offering a set of courses on Latin American Studies and its own Certificate in Latin-American Studies, the Centre sponsors research projects, organizes conferences and invites scholars from universities around the world, as well as practitioners to speak at IAC‘s round tables. IAC places great value on the maintenance and expansion of its institutional and personal links with the academic community in the Southern and Northern part of the Americas, as well as with relevant centers of excellence in Europe.
