In 2018W, HIST 250A deals with the cultural history of Latin America's Cold War by asking how global geopolitical animosities were mapped onto local tensions around race, class, gender and environment. With an eye toward identifying how history resonates in our present, we will look at how the Cold War context conditioned understandings of the region's indigenous past; how it fuelled environmental change, fed cultural production, and influenced gender norms. This is a discussion-heavy course, so come prepared to read, write and talk.
