In this course, students will examine the history of Latin American relations with the United States from independence to the present. We will consider both the political history of U.S.-Latin American relations (scrutinizing major turning points in foreign policy, occupation and intervention), as well as transnational histories of the region (through topics such as immigration, human rights, the African diaspora, feminism, drugs, and tourism). Course readings will reflect this breadth of material - students will be required to critically engage with primary sources ranging from declassified CIA records to oral histories with migrant workers.
