This course explores the history of Latin America from independence in the early 19th century to the end of WWI. It examines various sources of conflict: conflict between states as the borders of Latin American countries were defined; conflict over the nature of citizenship and rights as many countries ended slavery but sought to deny full rights to blacks and most sought to acculturate or eliminate indigenous cultures; and conflict over access to land and labour. The tumultuous 19th century set the stage for on-going struggle in contemporary Latin America.
