Admin - Academic Administration
Latin American Centre Admissions Secretary
I started working at the Latin American Centre (LAC), which I call the Happy Centre, in October 1988. The centre was then based in 21 Winchester Rd, had only 3 fellows and was running two courses with a small number of students (average 6). Today we are in 1 Church Walk, have 7 fellows attached to the centre and are running 3 courses with a larger number of students (average 25). During the years I have had the opportunity to meet and help so many students, visitors, recognised students, some of which are working with big firms/government all around the world.

I joined the LAC in February 2016 from SOAS where I had coordinated a project to promote language-based area studies. Before that, I worked at the University of Oxford China Centre. I have a background in Spanish, and recently completed an MA in Translation Studies.

Bodleian Latin American Centre Librarian and Subject Consultant
Being librarian at the Latin American Centre is a terrifically rewarding experience. The centre is inspirational from an academic and professional point of view, but is also very welcoming and friendly. A place that makes you feel at home. A nurturing environment. I love meeting the students and helping them with their studies, as well as working with my colleagues from both the library and the centre.
Senior Library Assistant
I have been at the Latin American Centre Library since December 2009. The Centre is an open gate to Latin America; lively and eclectic as this part of the world.
I feel really lucky to be part of the Library team and enjoy helping students and academics. I love being surrounded by our unique collection of books and having the opportunity to meet many interesting people with a broad knowledge on the field.
I think that the Latin American Centre Library is a truly inspirational place in which to work. Which other library covers Latin America, a fascinating and ever-changing region, so well; ensures working with such knowledgeable academics and supporting so many enthusiastic and interesting students and visitors? All this in a welcoming and nurturing environment.
