HI300 Colonial Latin America

Prerequisite: EN102

This course analyzes in detail Latin America under Spanish and Portuguese colonial rule from early conquest through the independence movements in the nineteenth century. Focus will be on the socioeconomic, political, and cultural forces that shaped Latin America’s colonial period and the historical and theoretical issues that arose from the trans-Atlantic encounter and exchange between indigenous, African, mestizo, and European populations. Some topics include the Inca and Aztec worlds, Indian-European confrontations, the Catholic Church and popular religion, patriarchy, racial dynamics and slavery, the development of capitalism, anticolonial struggles, imperial rivalry, reform, and decline. A library component is included.
