Latin American History

The modules in this section deal with Latin American history.

The first module covers political events in South America during the 20th Century. It was posted in May of 2006.

The second and third modules cover the same theme but focus on Caribbean and Central American politics. They were posted in the autumn of 2007.

All three modules were developed by Andrea Pratt Joseph under the supervision of Professors John Nicols, Carlos Aguirre, and Jim Mohr of the Department of History, University of Oregon.

The work on these modules was supported by a grant from the University of Oregon Educational Technology Fund and the College of Arts and Sciences and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation of Germany.
