HIS 3301 - History of the Southern Cone (3)

When Offered: Spring. Even-numbered years
In this course, students review colonial differences and explore the history of Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay from independence to the present, moving both geographically and chronologically to cover the four national histories. While the course will emphasize industrial development, social consolidation, political control, labor mobilization, and international responses, students will also examine genocide, guerrilla insurrections, peasant organization, linguistic policies, immigration and internal development. The class will debate recent economic coalitions and alternatives to globalization. Students complement the general chronological approach with thematic examples from the four southern countries to examine the recent changes and to assess area trends and directions.
