I am a student at the University of Oxford studying an M.Sc in Latin American Studies, specialising in history and economics. My major area of interest is US-Latin American relations during the Cold War. The provisional title of my master’s dissertation is ‘Frei, Allende and the United States: The 1964 Chilean Presidential Elections in Cold War Context.’ I am also interested in issues such as informal empire, (neo-) populism, the war on drugs and the New Left.

  1. Dear Robin,

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. I’ve corrected the inaccuracies you brought to my attention concerning the dates of discovery and settlement of the Falklands.
