HIST 230 - The Making of Latin America (LAC)

How did indigenous peoples, Europeans, Africans, and their mixed-race descendants become “Latin American”? How have people challenged colonial rule and its enduring legacies? Why have dictatorships or military regimes so often taken the reins of power, and what roles has the United States played in the region’s politics and development? This course, which surveys a broad swath of Latin American history from the 16th century to the present, addresses these and other questions through a wide range of sources. Particular attention is paid to records of life and thought left by individuals, who either composed documents themselves or spoke through the writings of others. (LAC)
