Latin American History

HILA 2559

New Course in Latin American History

Enviro Hist of Latin America
Fall 2017

What are the causes of social, economic, and political inequality in Latin America? How can environmental history help us understand these inequalities? In this lecture course, we will explore the ways that land, resources, and politics have driven and limited revolutionary movements in Latin America since independence. This is an introductory course that assumes no prior knowledge of Latin America.
