  • Janey Program in Latin American Studies

  • Jany Program

    Ongoing struggles over social justice, equality, human rights, and political liberty in Latin America resonate deeply at The New School for Social Research, reflecting many of the same concerns that led to the founding of the University in Exile in 1933 and continue to inform and energize our work.

    The Janey Program in Latin American Studies was launched in the 1991–1992 academic year with generous support from Daniel and Susan Rothenberg. Janey Rothenberg was strong in her ideas and in her commitment to others. She died of cancer on August 31, 1977, at the age of 27. At the time of Janey’s passing, she worked at the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA), a nonprofit that works toward a world in which the nations and peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean are free from oppression and injustice. NACLA wrote of Janey, “Her life was dedicated to teaching and learning, succeeding and failing, but most of all growing and sustaining herself and those who knew her. She gave us the strength and hope to do more than survive from day to day; she gave us the perspective which makes it possible for us to create the future.”

    The Janey Program is dedicated to Janey's spirit and to her commitment to justice in Latin America. The program supports fellowships for students from Latin America and the Caribbean pursuing graduate studies at The New School, summer fellowships for fieldwork and research in Latin America and the Caribbean, an annual conference, lectures, and occasional visits to The New School by scholars from Latin America. The Janey Program is an important component of the global perspective of The New School for Social Research and of Latin American studies in The New School as a whole.
