SPAN 160D1 – Issues in Latin American Society and Popular Culture
Gen Ed: Tier 1 Traditions and Cultures/160 · Gen Ed: Building Connections

This course is an introduction to fundamental concepts, practices, and approaches to the study of popular culture and politics in Latin America. We will explore diverse themes such as African slavery, religion, political violence, political power, the role of women in history and politics, the youth in political conflicts, nationalism, U.S.-Latin America relations, peasant insurgency, and human rights. Students will also develop an awareness of the social and historical contexts in which these manifestations developed throughout the construct of what we now call "new nations" in Latin America. The course will concentrate on case studies from six different countries: Mexico, Cuba, Peru/Ecuador/Bolivia, Argentina, Chile and Brazil. An important component to the course will be the examination of how Latin America and its culture is portrayed in the United States.
