Colonialism and Its Consequences in the Americas|
|Course Cluster and Certificates: Caribbean Studies Minor|
Why does colonialism matter to the fields of American studies, Latin American studies, and Caribbean studies? What have been the consequences of colonialism for the nations that make up the Western Hemisphere? This course offers a transnational, hemispheric approach to the study of the Americas through a comparative analysis of colonial ventures and their consequences. With a focus on the interactions of Indigenous, European, and African peoples, the course introduces a diverse range of issues and topics, such as the organization of production, including chattel slavery and indenture; the formation of colonial cultures and syncretic belief systems; and independence movements and the emergence of nation-states.
