This class examines the history of the Americas under Spanish and Portuguese rule, from European conquest and invasion to the creation of independent republics in the nineteenth century.

Pre-conquest indigenous societies, from imperial states (such as the Incas and Aztecs) to bands of hunter-gatherers, shaped colonial societies through their destruction, survival, resistance and accommodation to colonialism. Africans, radically uprooted by enslavement, preserved traditions and built new ones, within a circum-Atlantic plantation complex. Forced labor and trans-oceanic trade created enormous fortunes, throwing up boom-towns such as Potosí, in the southern Andes, which appeared overnight around the continent’s richest silver-mine to become one of the world’s largest cities, at 4000 meters above sea level. Through the violent and complex blending of Native American, African, and European peoples, colonialism formed a profoundly hybrid society — a prototype of the modern world.
