HI 230 - History Through Travel: Latin America 1500–1900


Credits: 3
An examination of the ideas and impact of European and North American travel narratives on historical knowledge of Latin America and the Caribbean from the sixteenth through the early twentieth centuries. Students examine accounts by conquerors, diplomats, pirates, scientists, missionaries, and tourists to consider what questions and analytical methods allow for interpretation of the factual or fictional elements in these important sources for the creation of historical knowledge about travelers, their values, the lands they visited, and the people, environments and cultures they described.
Note(s): (Fulfills social sciences requirement; when offered as HI 230W, fulfills expository writing requirement.)
