HIST 067. Digging Through the National Security Archive: South American "Dirty Wars" and the United States' Involvement
Focusing on 1970s Latin American dictatorships, this course's aims are twofold: firstly, a critical examination of the available scholarship on the so-called "Dirty Wars" that produced the disappearance of thousands of citizens-particularly young people-in the context of state terrorism; secondly, an exploration of the relations between those Latin American dictatorships and the United States through a rigorous research exercise using the National Security Archive and other primary sources.
