Latin American History
Jose Juan Perez Melendez
The Latin American History Workshop (LAHW) explores an eclectic array of questions in the history of Latin America and the Caribbean from around 1450 to the present. Graduate students and faculty in History and other disciplines take part in critical discussions of research papers centered on a range of places and historical topics within the region. The conversation that takes place in the Workshops devotes itself to questions of method and content as well as questions of each work’s insertion into broader Latin Americanist scholarship. The objective is to provide a space for open exchange and evaluation of ideas in the field while furnishing constructive feedback to student, faculty and guest presenters.
