LLS 227 Indigenous Latin America

3 hours

This course provides an overview of the diverse indigenous populations of Latin America. Through the interdisciplinary study of culture, history, and politics, students will learn and analyze topics such as the historical construction of race and gender, environmental threats, globalization, assimilation, nationalism, cultural citizenship, and ethnic revitalization. Students will explore the cultural and historical commonalities that bring the region of Latin America together, as well as learn about the specific variations across the region and within nations. We will discuss the challenges to being “Indian”, and address how they confront the problems these native communities face.
