The Program in Latin American Studies deeply influenced my experience as a grad student at Princeton. I was welcomed into the PLAS community upon my arrival as a Lassen Fellow and given an academic space where my ideas and expertise were always valued by the colleagues I met at PLAS. The multi-country, multi-archival research I conducted over the years for my PhD dissertation would also not have been possible without their generous financial support. PLAS was always a big supporter. PLAS is one of the reasons why I successfully defended and found a job. Thank you!
