About Friedrich Schuler
Professor Friedrich Schuler received his Ph.D. in 1990 from the University of Chicago. He joined the PSU History department faculty that same year. Trained within the European Humanistic tradition where inquiry is important for its own sake, Professor Schuler specializes in 20th Century Latin American foreign relations with Europe, Japan, the Vatican, the Soviet Union, and the United States.
Professor Schuler’s vision for teaching Latin American history now centers on developing a global approach, asking that students consider all parts of the world in relation to Latin American history, not just that of the U.S.
