Students at Tulane benefit from access to rich archival resources on campus and in the city, including the Hogan Jazz Archives, the Amistad Research Center (primary source materials pertaining to the history of America's ethnic minorities, race relations, and civil rights), the Historic New Orleans Collection, the Cabildo (formerly the seat of the Spanish government), the New Orleans Public Library and the New Orleans Notarial Archives (documents in French dating to the early eighteenth century). They also benefit from the linguistic laboratory that is "Acadiana," where they can do fieldwork on the region's vernacular varieties of French. Francophone Louisiana provides a revealing lens through which students can form distinctive perspectives marked by a focus on the local as it is shaped by, and in turn helps to shape, the global.
