Latin America's Political Pendulum.  The pendulum of Latin American politics is swinging rightward once again. Yet as the “pink tide” recedes, the forces of change have more to do with socioeconomics than ideology. Dramatic economic and political crises have coincided in countries like Brazil and Venezuela. Still, the final result for Latin America may be the emergence of centrist, pragmatic modes of governance, and with them, opportunities for the U.S. to improve relations. The new administration must look beyond the neoliberal model of the 1990s, and develop an approach to relations fit for the 21st century.  Facilitator: Martin Charwat, WACMHV.

The Future of Europe: Coping with the Crisis.   The outcome of the United Kingdom referendum on EU membership sent shockwaves across the globe. It even caught British voters by surprise. The European Union has helped secure peace in Europe for the past 70 years. Now it faces an uncertain future. Amid a refugee crisis, lingering financial recession and the constant specter of terrorism, unity seems more imperative than ever. But the Brexit vote underscores the complexities of integrating an extremely diverse continent. What will post-Brexit Europe look like, and how can U.S. foreign policy adapt?  Facilitator: Jean-Claude Fouere, WACMHV and Marist College.

Lecture now on Tuesday, November 14.  No war since the American Civil War has seared the U.S. national consciousness like Vietnam. The controversies surrounding it tore the nation apart, and its legacies continue to shape our understanding of the past and the present. The war forced Americans to ask fundamental questions about their country’s role in the world and its use of power. This talk examines the place of the Vietnam War in the nation’s history and traces its meaning and legacies. Robert. K. Brigham, Shirley Ecker Boskey Professor of History and International Relations, joined the Vassar faculty in 1994. He is a specialist on the history of U.S. foreign policy, particularly the Vietnam War and negotiations to end deadly conflict.
