Primary Instructor:

Latin America has a long history of diverse movements for social justice. This course illuminates the relationship between this history and the remarkable emphasis on universal human rights that has guided the region’s social movements and legal institutions over the past three decades.

This academic term's seminar focuses primarily on Brazil, considering the historical roots of contemporary activism — specifically street protests in response to unjust public spending on the World Cup and Olympics.

The course is taught in collaboration with Professor Keila Grinberg of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO). Several sessions will be held jointly with Prof. Grinberg’s undergraduate class at UNIRIO. Students will have the opportunity to travel to Brazil for a 5-day study trip at the end of the academic term to present their papers in a student conference and visit organizations that advocate for social justice. Students may apply for a grant from the Brazil Initiative at the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center to help defray the costs.
