Latin America in the 1960s

Latin America in the 1960s
Latin America was at the center of the Cold War in the 1960s. U.S. intervention and military repression contrasted with Marxist and national utopian visions for peace and social justice. This seminar will explore the causes, impact, and legacy of these tensions by examining student protests, guerilla warfare, liberation theology, and calls for women’s and minority rights. We will study the influence of personalities such as Che Guevara, Abdias do Nascimento, and the Mirabel sisters, and highlight the new revolutionary aesthetics in art and music in the New Song and film. We will also uncover the links with similar movements in the United States and Europe. 3 hrs. sem.
