Advanced Seminar in Latin American History|
Fall 2018 not offered
This upper-level seminar is designed to give students with previous course work in Latin American studies or study-abroad experience in Latin America the opportunity to pursue their interests at an advanced level by writing a research paper that can satisfy the senior capstone requirement in either history or Latin American studies. Drawing on the original conceptualization of the colonial heritage of Latin America and moving through transformations in the field, we will analyze recent scholarship in such topics as environmental history, gender, medicine, popular culture, race, and redemocratization and historical memory.
