The Institute for Historical Studies announces a symposium on "Latin America in the Cold War" this Thursday and Friday, October 29-30, 2009.
This symposium examines how the international Cold War intersected with the political, economic, social, and cultural development of Latin America in the second half of the 20th century. Two distinguished visitors are among the presenters.
Dr. Rafael Hernández of the Instituto Juan Marinello, currently a Mellon Visiting Professor at the University of Texas Institute for Latin American Studies and editor of Cuba's premier intellectual journal Temas: Ideología, Cultura, Política, will present the keynote address, entitled “On Hawks, Doves, Owls, Bears and Pitirres: The Cold War as a Zoo" on the first day.
On day two, Dr. Julio Moreno, a Fellow at the Institute for Historical Studies at the University of Texas and Associate Professor at the University of San Francisco, is the author of Yankee Don't Go Home!: Mexican Nationalism, American Business Culture, and the Shaping of Modern Mexico, 1920-1950 (UNC Press, 2007). He will present "Managing Cold War Turbulence: Coca-Cola in Latin America.”
