Description

This class will explore political spaces that have emerged in recent times. Some of these spaces are State-based: refugee camps, detention centers, ETRC’s, indigenous reservations. Others challenge the State’s authority and propose a new commons: Colombian palenques, caracoles Zapatistas, campamentos Sem Terra en Brazil. We will study their history, functions, and architectures while inquiring about autonomy, property, community, and freedom.

This course counts as elective credit for the Spanish minor.
