*First Year Course only; cross-listed with HIST 181-01* The idea of “Latin America” was concocted by French and Brazilian intellectuals in mid-19th-century Paris as a means to establish cultural links with Spanish America. Does such an invented term properly describe the complex region that ranges from the US Southwest to Tierra del Fuego? What are the implications of conjoining the histories of the heterogeneous peoples and societies encompassed in “Latin America”? And just how does the whole process of colonialism and neocolonialism fit into this picture?

These are some of the questions we will address in this course, which presents a roughly chronological survey of Latin American history. Given this broad scope, the course emphasizes three critical moments. The first concerns the great upheaval of the Conquest with an emphasis on the sixteenth-century establishment of a “colonial” order. The second traces the dissolution of this society and the transition to national states with an emphasis on the twin conceits of “science” and “progress.” The third emphasizes the twentieth century with special attention to the rise and fall (and rise) of corporate populism and the role of the United States as patron, interventionist, and foil. As a special project dovetailing with this year’s International Roundtable, the theme of migration to, from, and within “Latin America” will provide an additional through-line to this course.
