SPAN 3420  LATIN AMERICAN CIVILIZATION (3 credits)

What do we know about Latin American culture, geography, politics and languages? How has Latin America been imagined from the United States? Does it make sense to think of Latin America as one space brought together by a similar history or is it better to imagine it as twenty particular countries with intersecting pasts and futures? This course will attempt to answer these questions by introducing you to a number of key topics and debates common to contemporary Latin American culture, including issues such as democracy, class, race/ethnicity, gender/sexuality, religion, family and globalization. (Cross-listed with LLS 3420).
