An interdisciplinary study of the diversity of cultures within the Latin American world. The course explores the interconnections among native, African, and European cultures with the help of concepts such as acculturation, transculturation, syncretism, and dependency. Comprehension will be enhanced by presenting students with texts, movies, documentaries, and art produced by Latin American authors. Writing skills will be refined by the completion of research papers, and communications skills will be developed further by presentations. The course is conducted entirely in Spanish.
