Description

This course will study the symbiosis of politics, economy, and ideology in the making of modern Latin America. Taught in Spanish, the course will be divided into three parts: Part 1 will discuss how liberalism connected with the organization of modern Latin America. Part 2 will have students exposed to two ideological discourses which followed after the decline of liberalism: populism, and neoliberalism. Part 3 will discuss three important discourses that counteracted capitalism: dependency theory, socialism, and the theology of liberation.

This course counts as elective credit toward the Spanish minor.

Class Format:
