LALS 105 - Conceptualizing Latin and Latino/a America

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
Topic for 2017/18b: Memory, Human Rights, Politics in the Americas. This course explores historical memories, legacies and interweavings of racist, colonialist, and political violence across the Americas, as well as efforts to “come to terms with” such violations of human rights of the recent and not-so-recent past. Drawing from history, sociology, political science, museum studies, literary analysis, as well as memoirs, testimonies, and visual arts, the course examines historical injustices and struggles to address them across Latin America and the U.S.  We also think about the cross-border, transterritoriality of violence and the reproduction of violence through historical memory and lived experience. Katherine Hite

Two 75-minute periods.
