AN 314 - Peoples and Cultures of Latin America


This course is an anthropological introduction to the history and culture of Latin America. The lectures, films, readings, and museum exhibits will explore issues such as indigenous identities, political and human rights struggles, and health and healing. Since this is a course in anthropology we will examine ethical debates regarding anthropological research in the region. We will also explore transnational migration as an economic survival strategy for many Latin Americans.
