Scholarship in both global history and international relations increasingly understands the nineteenth century as a pivotal moment in the development international order. This project seeks to better understand the role of Latin America in this process. Given its status during this period— mostly independent but bereft of great powers and marginal to European international society—Latin America has been largely absent from discussions of international order or seen through the lens of their relations with the United States. Our research will further de-center understandings of international order's creation and examine the constraints and possibilities for peripheral influence.
