U85 IA 506The Mexico-U.S. Paradigm: The Southern Neighbor and the Scenes of Contemporary International Affairs3.0 Units
Description:Since the foundation of both republics and up to the present, the relationship between Mexico and the United States has played a central role in defining a variety of paradigms in international affairs. In addition, Mexico's unique approach to diplomacy is at the core of various economic and diplomatic doctrines influential across the Global South. This class explores the ways in which this relationship helps us think about questions of development, international security, immigration and political intervention. The first part of the class looks at the relationship historically, focusing on the complex relationship between the two countries in the Cold War, as well as Mexico's role as a negotiator with Cuba and the Soviet Union. The historical section will also discuss the role that Mexico played in the creation of developmental paradigms from the 1930s onwards. The second part of the class looks at the three hot-button issues between the two countries: trade, immigration and the Drug War. It will discuss the ways in which Mexico is an essential laboratory for policies related to security and commerce in the United States. The class will allow students to rethink ideas about economics, security and other questions in international affairs from a unique yet fundamental point of view. **Please note: in Spring 2021 this class will be delivered remotely.

Home/Ident

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
