Latin American History will look at the region from the colonial period to the present day. We will focus on the 19th and 20th centuries, from the creation of new nations to their movement into the modern world. The region is vital to our understanding of the modern world and as our direct neighbor to the south, the connections between the USA and Latin America will be explored. We will look at the region through political, social, and economic means. Intrinsic to our study will be the many different voices that have played a role in shaping the region.
Prerequisite: Open to members of the Fifth and Sixth Form; students in the Fourth Form may enroll upon completion of Ancient and Medieval History or with departmental approval.
