Latin American political, economic, social and cultural development during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is examined using specific countries and regions as case studies. The course explores how geography, the encounter between pre-Columbian cultures and Spanish/Portuguese colonialism, the introduction of African slavery, and the movements for independence shaped Latin America and its inhabitants.
