What are the conditions that give rise to change in a nation? In this series of webinars, scholars from across North Carolina will explain the circumstances that led to transformations in Latin America during the 20th century. From radical populist revolutions in Cuba and Nicaragua to the subversive coup d’états in Chile and Guatemala, we will learn how militaries, guerrilla fighters, and foreign governments all use violence to enact change - with vastly different results in each country. Participants will leave the session with an understanding about the lasting impacts of these historical conflicts that still affect these countries today.
While this series focuses on NC Latin American Studies and NC World History high school standards, teachers of all subjects and grades are invited to attend.
