7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Faculty House, 64 Morningside Dr., New York, NY 10027

A Long Cold War: The Remaking of Latin American Cold War Studies - University Seminar on Latin America

Thursday, May 5th, 2022 at 7pm at Columbia Faculty House

Hybrid attendance option available on Zoom. 


  • Amy Chazkel (Columbia University)
  • Gilbert Joseph (Yale University)

Gil Joseph (Yale) is one of a small but highly regarded group of “Revisionist” historians who reject the conventional wisdom that the Cold War began at the end of World War II and ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. They argue that the Cold War began with the Russian Revolution in 1917 and has yet to end in the Florida Straits, in Nicaragua, or in Colombia - and thus had been a Long Cold War. Joseph will present his cutting-edge Revisionist views as our Speaker, with Amy Chazkel (Columbia), a noted Brazil expert, as a Respondent.
