Dr. Sloan teaches a wide variety of courses in Latin American social and cultural history. “I believe the Master’s Program in Latin American and Caribbean Studies benefitted my future career directions by allowing me to study Latin America from the perspectives of different disciplines. I credit my time in KU's Latin American and Caribbean Studies program for molding me into a truly interdisciplinary scholar and teacher.”
