Description: The course on Latin American history will cover the period from roughly 1300 to the present, leading students to understand the complex historical systems and events that have driven the past, produced the present, and guide the future of Latin America. This survey course will impart an understanding of Latin American political, economic, diplomatic, social, and cultural history. Students will study cultures different from their own and learn to appreciate the validity of diverse cultural traditions. Rather than focus on independent histories of dozens of nations, this class will examine broad themes that have shaped the historical experience of all Latin America: conquest, imperialism, liberalism, neocolonialism, nationalism, revolution, and neoliberalism.
