HIST 473: Colonial Latin American History – Aztec, Mayan, and Inca Landscapes

Professor Becker – Thursday 3:30-6:20pm

In Colonial Latin American history we enter the worlds created by Mexico’s Aztec and Mayan indigenous people, Peru’s Incas, and the Africans slave traders brought to Brazil. We watch the fashions in which these remarkable indigenous and African men and women responded to the Europeans who sought to transform them, and the ways that in responses to the Europeans, the Aztecs, the Mayans, the Incas, and the Africans remade Latin American histories and possibilities. In this course, students are trained to thoughtfully, even imaginatively, enter these historical worlds.
