Introduction

Welcome to the guide to research resources on Latin America!

This guide offers an overview of research resources in the humanities and social sciences at USC for the study of Latin America. The term was originally coined in the 19th century by the French under Napoleon III as part of his grand scheme for the Americas. As used in this context it refers to all of the Americas south of the United States, including Mexico, the countries of Central and South America and the islands of the Caribbean.
