Learning about Latin America

Last week, the Council held its 37th annual Summer Seminar on World Affairs. On Wednesday, Dr. Scott Morgenstern, Professor of Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh, spoke to the participants about Latin America. One thing we discovered during the session is that many high school classes don’t cover current events in Latin America. As such, we wanted to share a few handy resources if you’re looking to keep up with what’s happening to our south.
