Course Description

This course uses an intersectional approach to the study of sex, class and race in Latin America. Intersectionality aims at understanding the interlocking relation between sex, class, race and other aspects, and how these are rooted in historical and social structures, and are reproduced and resisted through individual and collective experience. In this course we will aim at understanding such history, culture and peoples with a special emphasis on examining their heterogeneity, and aiming at understanding how such heterogeneity is also related with social inequality. We will also examine some contemporary issues such as women's rights, indigenous movements, human rights, migrations, and economy with an emphasis on their manifestations at the intersections of sex, class, and race.
