HIST 322 - Race and Ethnicity in Latin America (LAC)

Examines the history of racial and ethnic difference in Latin America, focusing on how racial and ethnic labels were bestowed, claimed, and disputed; what these implied for personal and collective identity; and how other social hierarchies (such as class and gender) operated alongside race and ethnicity in determining status. Attention is also paid to how ideas of race and ethnicity changed over time, especially in moments of economic or political crisis, and how these ideas were taken up by different social groups and in pursuit of various agendas (revolutionary, nationalistic, modernizing, etc.). Spans the colonial period to the present, with case studies from Mexico, Brazil, the Caribbean, and the Andes. (LAC)
