César Braga-Pinto, Professor of Brazilian, Lusophone African and Comparative Literature at Northwestern University, made a Case for Area Studies in YaleGlobal Online in March 2019 by stating, "Globalization may prompt some to question the need for specific and diverse language, literature and regional studies programs in higher education. . . . To remain relevant, scholars in the humanities must pursue all avenues of interdisciplinarity, although the scope and viability of such studies vary among institutions. Likewise, the nature and scope of research and teaching, or the discipline and departments, do not always coincide. This session will investigate, analyze and report on the recent threats, trends and current state of Latin American and European Studies collection management and academic publishing to determine how libraries and publishers are managing the cause to remain relevant.
