Course Description: This course provides an introduction and context for the broad sweep of economic and social developments in Latin America since the 1960s. The course examines human rights’ violations during the Latin American dictatorships of the 1970s as a specific tool to erase the leftist challenge to ruling classes across the sub-continent. It further analyzes neoliberal experiments in Latin America in two steps, during the 1970s and the 1990s. Finally, the course addresses Latin American social movements in the twenty-first century in order to understand the current shift in these societies. Among the most emblematic of such shifts is the phenomenon of Recovered Factories in Argentina, which provides the final case study for the course. The class relies on a course reader, online periodicals, newspapers and films, and visits to relevant sites in Buenos Aires to prepare for and complement classroom lectures and discussion. Assessment is based on weekly assignments, class participation and a final paper.
