Modern Latin America history class speaks with former VP of Nicaragua
Students went straight to the source several weeks ago in the course History 358: Political History of Modern Latin America taught by Assistant Prof. Gabriel Saxton-Ruiz. The UW-Green Bay students enjoyed an opportunity to speak via videoconference with the former vice president of Nicaragua, Sergio Ramirez. This former Sandinista leader is also one of the most prolific and influential novelists of Latin America. Students in the class read his memoir, Adiós Muchachos (Duke University Press, 2011), to better understand the Sandinista Revolution and the Iran-Contra affair from a Nicaraguan perspective.
