Courses: Modern Latin America (HISTH209B01)

Spring 2012

This course introduces students to modern Latin American history from the 19th C demise of Spanish & Portuguese colonialism through the present. We shall discuss all the major regions & cultural zones of contemporary Latin America, though in varied depth given the inevitable constraints of time & disciplinary boundaries. Particular attention will be paid to the interplay of gender, race, and class in specific contexts, and we shall examine how social conflict has influenced historical change.
