Robert F. Kennedy Visiting Professorship

The Robert F. Kennedy Visiting Professorship in Latin American Studies was created at Harvard University in 1986 through a generous gift from Edmond Safra and the Republic of New York Corporation. The endowment enables Harvard to regularly invite eminent Latin Americans from any field, a composer one year, an historian the next, an architect, physiologist, legal scholar, banker, novelist, poet, economist, sociologist, anthropologist, to teach at the University for one semester. Each year, the Center invites faculty members to nominate eminent scholars or practitioners for the Robert F. Kennedy Visiting Professorship in Latin American Studies. RFK Professors may be appointed in any department or school of the University, but must be currently residing in Latin America and are typically appointed for one semester.
