HIST 164 - Latin American History ‘through the lens’

0.5 unit(s)
(Same as LALS 164 ) Film can be a source of entertainment, a propaganda tool, a medium of artistic expression, and a shaper and reflector of national identity. This course explores the history of specific moments and themes in twentieth-century Latin America-US perceptions of Latin America; revolution; “Dirty Wars”; the transition from authoritarianism to democracy; and Liberation Theology-that have defined the region’s recent history and been the subject of domestic film production and foreign consumption. Course readings include historical studies of the specific themes and primary materials that illuminate critical aspects of each theme. Leslie Offutt.

First and second six-week course.

Two 75-minute periods plus outside screenings.

Not offered in 2019/20.
