HIST 36110 - Environmental History Of Latin America


Credit Hours: 3.00. This course is designed to introduce students to the history of Latin American ecological and biological environments. Environmental history of Latin America is closely intertwined with agricultural development, socio-economics, land tenure regulation and identify formation. As such, this course examines the fundamental role that changes in the land have had on migration patterns, legislation formation, activism, subsistence, state building and indigenous movements. Some of the vital historical intersections we will explore in this course are: disease epidemics and tropical environments, work conditions and export economies, eco-tourism and community activism. Typically offered Fall Spring Summer.
