ANTH 115 PZ -Global Latin America


Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course examines Latin American culture and society through the lens of global interconnections over time. We will explore how industrialized global capitalism emerged in colonial plantations in the New World, and how categories of races were constructed in the colonies and later in the newly independent nation states. Additionally, we will examine the production of global connections in terms of social movements, (im)migration, imperialism, and networks of knowledge. Finally, we will look at nostalgia for an imagined time prior to a globally embedded Latin America. Readings will focus on ethnography but also draw from history, science and technology studies, ethnomusicology and fiction.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
