Latin American Studies (LATNAMER)

LATNAMER 2000 Latin America: An Interdisciplinary Introduction 3 Credits

Latin America is an idea as well as a set of geographical, historical, literary, and anthropological entities. That is, academics confront this part of the globe as much for its conceptual fertility and promise as for its concrete representations. This course offers an opportunity to explore both of these phenomena from an interdisciplinary perspective. In order to fully engage this region and its diaspora, we as scholars are obliged to understand Latin America as a sum of its written, visual, and testimonial "texts" which we will begin to explore throughout this class.
