    Subtitle: Students and Protest in Latin America's Cold War

    Course Description: 

    This course examines the historical intersection of the politics of the Cold War and the milieu of student and youth protests during the period. Mid 20th century Latin America experienced widespread mobilizations, many led by students. We will consider the global, national, and local contexts in order to understand this moment of deep change. We will learn about the organizing of rural students in boarding schools and also the actions of middle-class university students, all of which brought with them violent reactions from governments across the region.
