HIS 212 "RACE" COLONIAL LATIN AMER
This course explores how concepts of "race" and enduring systems of discrimination emerged from Spain and Portugal's imperial projects. Long before scientific racism, the Spanish and Portuguese colonizers and architects of the Atlantic slave trade developed ways to mark difference and organize America's indigenous, Iberian, and African societies according to hierarchies of ethnicity, honor, gender, and religious purity.
Enrollment limited to 28 students.
