U.S. relations with Latin America is the topic of new Provost's Series discussion
(April 21, 2004) GENEVA, N.Y.–It is widely acknowledged that Hispanics are the fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States. What role they might play in U.S. relations with other governments, particularly those in Latin American countries, is the subject of a lecture recently added to the Provost's Series lineup.
On Tuesday, April 27, Tom Millington, professor emeritus of political science at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, presents “Countervailing Race Relations In The United States: A Political Direction For Hispanics.” His lecture begins at 5 p.m. in Stern Hall, Room 103. Both the talk and the reception following are open to members of the HWS and greater Geneva communities.
Millington has been one of the mainstays of HWS and of the political science department for the past 30 years. Retired from teaching at the Colleges in 1997, he is the author of “Debt Politics After Independence: The Funding Conflict in Bolivia” and “Colombia's Military and Brazil's Monarchy: Undermining the Republican Foundations of South American Independence.” An upcoming book on U.S.-Latin American relations revisits the theme of his talk in greater detail.
Initiated in 2004, the Provost's Series features HWS professors and instructors at the podium.
