HIST 328 - Colonial Latin America

(3.00)
This course will introduce students to the Pre-Columbian background of the Americas, the impact and meanings of European conquest, and the history of three centuries of Spanish and Portuguese rule that followed until independence in the early nineteenth century. The transition from Amerindian civilizations and native rule to European conquest and colonization marked a violent, painful, and complex shift in race and ethnic relations, in religious and cultural life, in ideas about gender, sexuality, and practices related to marriage, and profound economic transformations in the hemisphere. The course will invite students to look at the impact of the conquest from multiple perspectives, to confront our conventional knowledge about the Columbian encounter, and to understand the deeper processes of colonization. Recommended Preparation Any 100-level Social Science course.
