Colonial Latin America

Colonial Latin America
In this course we will examine the formation of Latin American societies from 1492 to 1800, with emphasis on the contact and interaction of indigenous, European, and African civilizations. We will study three major themes: the transfer of Spanish and Portuguese Catholic society compared to their British and French counterparts; the development of the distinct Ibero-American notions of justice, status, race and gender; and the ways in which Protestants, Jews, pirates, and other groups resisted Iberian authority. Finally, we will see how these developments eventually led to independence movements of the early nineteenth century. Pre-1800. 2 hrs. lect./1 hr. disc. (formerly HIST 0285)
