This writing intensive history seminar explores the history of the intimate but often conflictual relationship between the US and Latin America from the early 19th century to the present. Rather than having any pretensions at exhaustive coverage, we will focus on case studies primarily drawn from U.S. relations with Cuba, Mexico, and Puerto Rico, as well as emphasizing the evolving cultural, political, and economic roles of Latin communities within the United States.
This semester we’ll focus on American Empire after 1898, and the history of Mexican immigration to the United States.
