Course description

This course introduces graduate students to interdisciplinary studies of Latin America by examining issues around three elements that have been identified by thinkers such as Frantz Fanon, Sylvia Wynter, Walter Mignolo and Kamala Kempadoo, as the pillars of the colonial matrix of power: gender, race and territory. Through readings and discussions, participants explore varying approaches to these issues, noting how they mobilize diverse theories, methods, and politics. Perspectives considered come from locations across Latin America and elsewhere, and express varied disciplinary, gender, ethnoracial, sexual, class, and political positions.
