Welcome to HIST 318 – a course on the complicated history between the nations of Latin America and the Caribbean and the United States of America.
Today marked our first class. Prior to our meeting we read a series of articles on recent happenings and opinions of the status of relations between the various nations.
Cuba was of obvious discussion, based on President Obama’s historic change of a failed US policy.
Other themes we identified related to issues of trade, democracy and civil/human rights, drugs trafficking, migration, and soft power and culture.
We have a course website readers may review. Feel free to comments or ask questions in the comments section.
