Colonialism and Its Consequences in the Americas|
This course, required for American Studies and Latin American Studies majors, offers a comparative analysis of colonial ventures and their consequences in the Americas. Among the topics to be discussed are organization of production, including state labor systems, chattel slavery, and indenture; governance and colonial bureaucracies; the interaction of indigenous, European, and African peoples and the formation of colonial culture and syncretic belief systems; independence movements and the emergence of nation states. Consistent with the interdisciplinary nature of the Americas programs, the course introduces diverse theoretical and methodological approaches to these issues.
