For this assignment, you are to read current news articles about Latin America from the website for the North American Congress of Latin America (NACLA) and submit three short reviews during the semester. Please submit one review per due date. Each review is to be at least 3-4 pages and each due date corresponds to a regional topic in Latin America. The due dates for these reports are February 11 and 25; and March 11. Here are the regional topics corresponding to each due date:

  • February 11: Mexico, Border issues and immigration, United States foreign policy, and Latinx communities

  • February 25: The Caribbean (Cuba, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, etc.), and Central America (Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua, and Belize).

  • March 11: South America (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Uruguay, Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, Paraguay, and Venezuela)

Please submit your reports through Canvas in either of the following formats: doc, docx or PDF (if you are using Google Docs or Apple Pages to compose your review, please be sure to convert your paper to docx or PDF before submitting it). Late papers will be accepted for each submission, but only for one week after the assigned due dates and will be assessed a full grade deduction. Please use both a title page and a works cited page (neither of these pages count toward your 3-4 pages of text). These 3 reports will count as a combined 30% toward your final grade. In your works cited page, compose your article entry in a format like this:

Emilio Godoy, “Mexico Bans Glysophate But Tolerates Other Agrochemicals,” NACLA Report on the Americas website (January 28, 2021).

In terms of the content of each report, I am looking for two main points of discussion. First, you should devote the first half of the report to a summary of the main points in the article that you selected. To help you to address this issue, consider some of these questions: What is the main issue being discussed? (i.e. immigration, elections, education, environment, women’s issues, crime, etc.) Who are the main personalities mentioned in the article? (i.e. Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, President Biden, Vice-President Harris, Former President Trump, etc.) How does the issue affect the people of the country mentioned in the article? Does the issue have any connection with United States interests? What do you think could be the best solution to resolve this problem?

And for the second point of discussion, please analyze the article that you selected and present your point of view on the story. For example, how do you feel about the story? How did this article contribute to your understanding about modern Latin America? And what do you think about the author’s perspective on the article? How does this topic relate to contemporary political, economic or cultural themes in the United States today?

Here is a list of articles from the NACLA website pertaining to regions for your first due date. The dates listed in parenthesis correspond to the publication date of the article. Everybody, just pick any one article from this list for your February 11 review. You will repeat the same process for your reviews on Central America/the Caribbean, and a South American nation. These articles range in date from February 2019 to December 2021.
