Latin America has been a focus of political scientists for decades, as these 19 diverse countries share many features and yet also represent a wide array of political experiences and trajectories, including: communist revolutions; bloody civil wars; military dictatorships known for massive human rights violations; presidential autogolpes; and, yes, even stable democracy. In this course, students will explore the dynamics that shape Latin America through simulations of the Mexican Revolution and post-dictatorship Argentina and research projects highlighting particular aspects of politics in the region.
