Course description

"Introduction to Latin American Studies" is your first stop into the wonderful realm of that thing called "Latin America."  Aimed for undergraduate students with all kinds of interests and backgrounds, this course is designed to give a broad view of the topics and singularities of the Latin American universe. From the early modern European mythologies that shaped the continent to the musical varieties that emerged during the past five centuries—and from guerrilla-fighters to mega-projects of infrastructure—we would give a tour, joined by several invited guests of the Center for Latin American Studies, around the around the complex, fun, and sometimes absurd realities south of Rio Grande.
