Latin American Studies 100

Usual Description

What is Latin America and why does Latin American Studies exist as an academic field of study? What does it mean to study Latin American from the outside, particularly from the United States? This multidisciplinary, team-taught course lays the groundwork for an intentional and self-reflective trajectory through Oberlin’s interdisciplinary LATS program. In addition to the history of Latin American Studies, it addresses questions that are central to any scholarly engagement with the region.
