The Making of Inequalities in Latin America: Seminar





This new iteration of the Latin American History Workshop will examine recent historiography on the region focusing on the making of social, racial and gender inequalities. The seminar will explore three main areas of scholarship: first, slavery and other forms of forced labor and its relationship with the emergence of racial ideologies; second, gender inequalities, especially in regard to struggles to obtain labor and reproductive rights; third, the enduring struggles for democracy in the region, comprising resistance to dictatorships, military interventionism, and right-wing extremism. The workshop also intends to open ample space for the discussion of work in progress by the students (from prospectuses and scholarly articles to dissertation chapters). Students must complete both terms of this course (parts A and B) within the same academic year in order to receive credit.
