HI 111 - Latin American History: An Introduction


Credits: 3
An introduction to the economic, political, social, and intellectual history of Latin America. Organized thematically and chronologically, topics emphasize understanding the emergence of the colonies of Spain, Portugal, France, and England into a group of distinct nation-states. Students will explore Latin American society from initial encounters among Europeans, Africans, and Native Americans. We then study independence: political, economic, and social challenges of early nation-state formation in a multicultural context. We conclude with the twentieth century, addressing topics such as industrialization, revolution, U.S.-Latin American relations, and selected intellectual trends.
Note(s): Not open to students who have successfully completed HI 109.
(Fulfills Cultural Diversity requirement, fulfills social sciences requirement; fulfills humanistic inquiry and global cultural perspective.)
