-  Nowhere are the Cold War's contradictions more visible than in the experience of those places where the war was decidedly "hot", such as in much of Latin America. HIST 250 will look at the many ways that people from Latin America mapped local, racial, cultural, ecological and gender-based animosities onto the global tension between capitalist, liberal democracy, on the one hand, and Communism, on the other. This is a discussion-heavy course, so come prepared to read, write and talk.
