Africa Diaspora in Latin America A comparative exploration of the social, economic, political, and cultural conditions as lived realities of Latin Americans of African descent over time. The class attempts to sort through the complex historical process and the various meanings of identity, racism, national identity and inclusion, and racialization in the Americas, and the ways in which Afro-Latin Americans have transformed and continue to transform their respective societies in both subtle and significant ways. It is interdisciplinary in approach, drawing heavily on research in the fields of history, anthropology, sociology and, cultural studies. [AH, C, HSS]
