GOVT 220 The United States and Latin American Relations

It is impossible to understand the expansion of the US's international role in the past two hundred years without knowledge of our country's relationship to the rest of the Americas, particularly the nations in Latin America. This course introduces students to the United States historical relationship with Latin America from the early 1800s to the present day. Students examine events and US policies from multiple ideological and national lenses, critically evaluating the debates that color so-called "objective" accounts of history.
