Primary Instructor:

This course examines the idea of Latin America, and how it was built over time. Starting with the conflict that emerged between Colombus's expectation of finding the Indies and the reality of the new world, and passing through the establishment of imperial colonies, the resulting movements of independence, and the rise of neocolonialism and globalization, students will have the chance to reflect on the idea of Latin America through primary and secondary sources. Students will read texts that deal with Latin American history, society, politics, economics, and culture through a multi-national approach, touching on topics such as class, race, gender, colonialism, dependency, and intervention.

This course counts as literature credit for the Spanish minor.
