CULTURES AND CIVILIZATIONS OF THE SPANISH SPEAKING AMERICAS
2023 Spring Term
UW Extended Campus Online SP236
This introductory-level survey course offers an overview of major historical and cultural developments of the Spanish-speaking Americas from the time of European contact (1492) through the colonial period, national struggles for independence, and popular revolutions until the 21st century. The second half of the semester emphasizes the exploration of modern Latin America by region, with particular focus on how artistic, spiritual and other forms of cultural expression in each region can be understood as the result of a confluence of five centuries of indigenous, African diasporic, and Iberian/European influence.
