HST380.13 Indigenous History of Chile and Latin America

Taught in Spanish. In order to analyze historical processes and understand them from a long-term point of view, this course studies several geographical and cultural areas of Latin America. The course will describe the main aspects and developments of the Mesoamerican region, the Caribbean, the Amazon and the Andean area, comparing them to the particular and diverse cultures that occupied the Chilean territory (desert, transitional desert, the valley region, the forests in the South and Polynesia). The course will study the different native groups who inhabited the Latin American continent as well as those who still have a significant presence in Latin America. Class taught at Pontificia Universidad Católica and may not be available every semester. (PUC IHI0211)
