Latin America is a very vast and extremely diverse region. Its almost 600 million people speak more than 500 languages and live in more than twenty countries. This seminar introduces Latin American societies and cultures by means of studying salient topics of contemporary anthropological inquiry. Through regional comparison, we will critically examine the ways in which culture relates to both the naturalization of inequalities and the resistance to subordination. In addition, we will identify the general trends and regional particularities that have shaped Latin American societies. Topics we will discuss include nation building, mestizaje, indigenous movements, culture and ecology, youth, coca and cocaine, gender issues, and cultural creativity. We will complement our readings watching several documentaries and films in Spanish language.
