HIST 117 - Modern Latin American History

Credits: 4
An examination of 19th- and 20th-century Latin American struggles to create effective national, political, and economic systems in a postcolonial global context. Through particular attention to legacies from the colonial period, students explore how gender, racial, ethnic, and class differences undergird political and economic structures, and how this historical relationship contributes to recent characteristics of the region, including -“underdevelopment,” dictatorship, guerrilla warfare, narco-trafficking, democratization, and neo-liberal trade.
