HIST 471. Social History of South America. 3 Hours H/W.

The various republics of South America have experienced radical social change since the late 19th century. Compressed industrialization has propelled the accelerated growth of global megacities, mass immigration from Europe and Asia, and the rise of populist and socialist politics that address the needs of the working class. This course follows a thematic approach by examining collective violence, endemic poverty, shifting gender relations, labor conflict, public health, revolutionary movements, and dictatorships. LEC.
