Experts on Latin America’s Cold War Travel to Yale for History Conference

Approximately twenty historians from North America, Latin America, and Europe recently convened on the Yale campus for a conference to analyze the role of “experts and expertise” in Latin America’s “long Cold War.”

The conference, titled “Traveling Technocrats: Experts and Expertise in Latin America’s Long Cold War,” welcomed visiting scholars from as far afield as Argentina, Chile, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, and across the United States to share their own brand of traveling expertise. The event, co-organized by Yale Department of History Ph.D. Candidates Andra Chastain and Timothy Lorek, took place at the MacMillan Center on October 14-15, 2016.
