Course Title
Women in Latin America

Description of Course:

This course provides an in depth, graduate-level coverage of the history of Latin America through the lens of women’s roles and activities in the region from the beginning of the colonial period (roughly 1492) to the present. The course will require students to examine women in Latin America in the context of existing theoretical models for Women’s Studies. As a graduate seminar, the course will incorporate critical analysis of secondary literature and interpretations of primary sources. Students will gain an understanding of how the history of Latin America viewed through the perspective of women frequently presents different themes and different emphases than the political, economic, and social narratives that dominate traditional survey courses. Students will learn the unique roles women played in their societies compared to men and compared to women in other societies.
