ANTH 235 - Peoples and Cultures of Latin America

The course looks at the issues faced by peoples and cultures of Latin America primarily through the careful reading of ethnographies. The ethnographies, as well as the associated articles and films used in the course, highlight the social realities and history of Latin American region. In this course we focus on understanding the interconnectedness of the Americas, the relationship between gender and state development, multiple forms of violence (structural, gendered, political, symbolic and everyday), religious change, and the impact of migrations, as well as the legacies of historical constructions of race, gender and ethnicity.
