ANT 2800 - Latin America Through Ethnography (3)

When Offered: Spring
GEN ED: Social Science Designation; Liberal Studies Experience
This course offers a critical examination of recent and well-received ethnographies on the cultures and regional histories of Latin America (Guatemala, Mexico, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Chile) with the hope that by taking a multi-framed approach to reading and discussing these contributions, we may better understand both the similarities and differences Latin America has with other world areas. Topics to be discussed include tourism, development, indigenous activism, democracy, transnationalism, violence, performance, health, citizenship, and social movements.
