New Orleans Center for the Gulf South
The New Orleans Center for the Gulf South is dedicated to preserving and perpetuating the rich culture and history of the Central Gulf South. The Center is a platform for interdisciplinary work on this region’s unique history, identity, and culture. With a focus on the Central Gulf Coast and areas of the Caribbean and Latin America that have impacted the culture of the Gulf Coast, the Center will raise awareness of the traditions and heritage of this region. The mission rests on three pillars: research, teaching, and community engagement. Through partnerships with community, national, and international institutions, the Center will integrate research and curriculum on the Gulf South into broader programming such that the region’s culture will remain vibrant for future generations.
