PSCI 290 - U.S. - Latin American Relations - Capstone Seminar


This course examines the historical and contemporary relations between the United States and Latin-American countries. After a brief historical overview of U.S. foreign policy toward Latin America, we explore various themes central to U.S.-Latin American relations. Topics include the impact of U.S. hegemonic rule; revolutionary challenges to U.S. hegemony; economic relations, including Dollar Diplomacy and NAFTA; defending national security, democracy and human rights; the “war on drugs”; and the Latin Americanization of the United States. While we seek a deeper understanding of common patterns in U.S.-Latin American relations, the course also emphasizes the uniqueness of national experiences.
