HIS 270I - Latin America, 3 credit hours


Prerequisite(s): One 100-level HIS course or INT 200I  
A crucible of three major cultures – Native American, European, and African – the region of Latin America is a fascinating study in contrasts. Some of the oldest democratic constitutions in the world were drafted in Latin America, yet the region still wrestles with the negative legacies of colonialism, imperialism, and feudal exploitation. This course will explore the history of this diverse region, from the first great American civilizations of the Pre-Columbian era,to the problematic and protean present.
