HIST 525: Problems in Latin American History

HIST 525-001: Transnat'l Hist., the Americas
(Spring 2017)

Section Information for Spring 2017

In the last couple of decades, a “transnational turn” has begun to rewrite the history of the United States and of Latin America. For some scholars, transnational history entails mining archives in multiple countries in order to write histories that span national borders. For others, it means applying Atlantic or even global frames to the study of topics that have long featured in national historiographies. This course will explore the new transnational history of the modern Americas, focusing on such topics as independence, migration, race, imperialism, movies, and music.
