History of the Americas: Latin America and the Cold War
June 19-22, 2019
The Center for Latin American Studies and the Center to Support Excellence in Teaching present this three-day course on the Cold War and how it affected, and was shaped by, Latin America and the Caribbean. Expert Latin American studies scholars will provide rich content knowledge, from U.S. and Soviet involvement to inter-American relations in post-Cold War Latin America, including the role of underrepresented populations such as women and indigenous groups. We will explore how to use primary sources, literature, and scholarly texts to build curriculum that reflects the revised History-Social Science Framework, encouraging students to think critically about key historical events and navigate complex and often contradictory content.
