History 318 is an upper division course covering the history of relations and interactions between the United States and the nation-states of Latin America and the Caribbean from the era of independence to the present day.  The course will examine the various types of relations and contacts between these societies and states how it changed over time.  In addition, the class will study the various processes and ideologies that influenced the shape of the relations and contacts.  As a result, the course will focus on a series of historical problems including:  nationalism and intervention, economic development and trade relations, authoritarianism and democracy, revolution and counter-insurgency.  Our goals are to convey some basic factual knowledge about this complicated history among nations in the Americas, to assess the various approaches scholars utilize in researching international relations, and to provide a set of interpretive frameworks for understanding the historical changes taking place.
