This class explores the history of Colonial Latin America, from 1492 to independence in the early 19th century. Themes examined include the apparent contradictions of the combination of incredible violence and a long legalistic peace, of colonialism and continued indigenous culture and authority; of separate republics and intense co-mingling of cultures and peoples, of economic stagnation and intense economic activity, of forced labour and emergent capitalism, death and resurrection, resistance and accommodation.
