HIS 3220 - Revolutions in Latin America

3 cr
This course examines the role revolutionary violence played in establishing a modern Atlantic world based on the idea of the liberal nation-state. We will take as our guiding assumption that liberation movements in Latin America played a key role in that process, but we will at times consider the critical influence of revolutions in North America and Europe on events in Latin America. We will especially consider the roles of nationalism, Marxism, and anti-colonialism in providing models for revolutionary violence.
This course fulfills the World Views Frame of Reference.
