This course is a historical survey of Latin America and the Caribbean from the first days of European and African contact with the Americas to the moment of Spanish and Portuguese American independence. The course will examine pre-Columbian cultures and their social organization, the first instances of contact and the subsequent colonial imperial administrations of the Spanish and Portuguese. Through the use of primary and secondary sources, this course will explore such themes as conquest, hegemony, ―trans-culturation,‖ race and ethnicity, mestizaje, social, political and economic structures, resistance and the conditions that shaped the fledgling independence movements and ultimately the modern nation states that comprise Latin America today. 3 Credits
