LAS 201WI - Introduction to Latin America from Pre-Contact to Independence


Credits: 3

This course serves as a survey of Latin American history from pre-Columbian to the independence movements of the 19th century. Exploration, conquest, settlement, and cultural development are major themes examined throughout the course. We will examine a variety of issues including economics, democracy, racism, class structures, gender, and ethnicity. Specific emphasis will be given on the way in which Latin Americans view themselves and how their culture, economics, and politics have developed in different directions than the United States and Europe. This course is cross-listed as HIS 201WI .
