Nine credits chosen between SPANISH 279 and 399; or two RCLANG 324 and six credits chosen between SPANISH 279 and 399.

Primary Instructor:

This course will explore the difficult relationship between Western academic disciplines such as Anthropology (physical, cultural, and social), Archaeology, and Historiography, and indigenous peoples of the world--with a special emphasis on the Americas. The readings and class discussions will try to explore the ways in which indigeneity was created from said disciplines. In order to do so, we will focus on some classic texts that had an enormous impact on the ways in which the non-specialists (that is, the general public) view indigenous peoples today.

This course counts as elective credit for the Spanish minor.
