Latin America's history is tremendously, and increasingly, significant to global politics, culture, and economic trends. Sharing a hemisphere with the United States, Latin Americans have had especially close and complex relationships with their northern neighbor. Yet many in the United States possess only a superficial understanding of the region's diverse multicultural societies. This course will introduce students to how modern Latin American nations were formed after the region's independence, focusing especially on how people of diverse ethnic, political, and economic affiliations have struggled to shape their societies' politics and cultures.

Lectures include selections from Latin American music, film, art, journalism, photography, legal texts, and other primary sources. Readings include a concise interpretive textbook, an array of primary documents, a novel, short stories, and memoirs.

*Students proficient in Spanish may earn one additional credit by enrolling in the Spanish discussion section 004. This section, conducted entirely in Spanish, will include discussion of the regular course readings as well as short Spanish texts.

There are no prerequisites for this course.
