This survey course studies the formation of the relationship between the U. S. and Latin America since the early days of the Wars of Independence. The period of continental state formation, the subsequent U. S. southward expansion by the turn of the century, and the transformations that occurred as a consequence of U.S. position as a world power, including the World Wars, the Cold War and its aftermath, and the current post-Cold War transition will be analyzed also. While the course will implement a comprehensive historical approach, the focus is placed on the analysis of specific moments and crises. Even when the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries are the grounds to understand the process of policy formation, the bulk of the course concentrates on the diplomatic performance in the Twentieth Century to the present. We will not only address the analysis of the major continental actors that shaped the core of the inter-American relations but also to less known actors that have impacted relations as well.

The University of Belgrano utilizes a 45-minute contact hour whereas the United States higher education system utilizes a 50-minute contact hour. All University of Belgrano courses represent the 45 contact hour amount and an estimated US credit calculation based on the contact hours. Each University of Belgrano transcript will include the number of hours per week and the weeks in the semester, so US universities may calculate the appropriate number of US credits for students.
