What historical themes and patterns have most powerfully shaped the diverse and sometimes divided societies of Latin America today? What social, political and economic forces have informed the life experience of immigrants from Latin American countries? In this seminar series we draw insight from geography, economics, political science, literature and anthropology to help interpret the region. Each session invites participants to explore Latin America through a different thematic lens: Power, Race, Slavery and Land; Revolutions and Dictatorial Regimes; Democracy, Development, and the Continuing Challenge of Inequality. The course will include new documents, tech tools, and resources for the classroom, bi-lingual workshop materials for World Language courses (Spanish and Portuguese), and a featured cultural event.
