A several questions to consider:
- What do you think about Latin America as a distinct cultural-linguistic area of study?
- Does the idea of “Latin” America exclude Brazil or Haiti? What about Jamaica?
- Do you agree with Drake and Hilbink that there is still value in studying Latin America from the Area Studies perspective?
