Topic:  Readings in the social history of modern Latin America. This course is an intensive readings seminar primarily for, but in no way limited to, graduate students preparing for minor and major fields in Latin American history. The seminar has three basic objectives:  1. to provide you with the opportunity to read and discuss works with which you should be familiar for your examination fields: this includes works considered seminal in the field;  revisionist works that challenge and/or expand such interpretations; and very recent works that hint at new directions in the field;  2. to delineate a number of the most prominent thematic emphases, methodological approaches, and debates characteristic of the field since the 1960s;  3. to situate these themes and methods in relation to broader developments in the discipline of history.  Undergraduate students welcome with permission of instructor. Graduate students from any fields and/or disciplines welcome.
