Primary Instructor:

This course examines numerous Latin American revolutionary movements, from the major social upheavals of the Mexican, Cuban and Nicaraguan Revolutions to the small but influential revolutionary groups of South America that emerged in the 1960s and 70s. We will seek to define what makes a movement revolutionary by asking how they emerged and developed over time, why people participated in or against them, and what consequences they have had. We will also pay close attention to the ways in which revolutions have been interpreted and re-interpreted over time, especially through media such as film and art.
