LAS380.35 Formation and Development of Latin American Society

Taught in Spanish. This course analyzes the main theories of sociology applied to the processes of modernization and development in Latin America. The course will also discuss and analyze how Chilean society is connected to, and reflects, the processes of social and economic change in Latin America. Our goals are to:

  • Identify the main sociological interpretations of the processes of development and modernization during the 20th Century in Latin America,
  • Analyze the main political, economic, social and cultural phenomena in connection with the formation of Chilean and Latin American societies, and
  • Develop a critical conception of contemporary political events in Chile and their connection with Latin American reality. (PUC #SOL113)
