About Quechua at CLACS NYU
Through a wide range of programs and events, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) serves as a point of connection for scholars, students and members of the public who share an interest in Quechua languages and cultures. Scholars and students from around the world meet through CLACS, furthering research and study of Quechua, while online resources expand the scope of initiatives, increasing access to Quechua-related materials. Native speakers from the NYC metropolitan area as well as from the Andean region of South America regularly collaborate with the NYU community to support the diffusion, exploration and celebration of these indigenous languages.
