The courses in this concentration explore the historical processes that have created and continue to shape the diverse people living in the Americas throughout the centuries, focusing specifically on the peoples of Latin American origins and by calling attention to the complex interplay among Indigenous, African, European, Arab, Asian and Semitic societies in the region. This concentration provides the methodological and theoretical tools to analyze longitudinally and comparatively key historical issues such as colonization, imperialism, militarism, revolution, the struggles for liberation and self-determination, nationalism, and the creation of borders and boundaries, as well as the development of unique art and literary expressions.
* Courses from other departments may count towards this concentration; consult your LALS advisor for more information.
