Ni Yankees ni Marxismo:Peron
In this course we will consider the rise of Populism and its political experience in Argentina in order to study the cultural core of the Peronist social movement. Through the study of oral history, popular culture, and personalities such as Juan Perón, Eva Perón, and Brasil’s Getúlio Vargas we will examine the building of political popular sentiment and the continental nature of Populism. In addition we will examine the interaction between Peronism and U.S. foreign policy and how it shaped the Argentinian experience. This course counts as elective credit towards the History major.
