PSC380.20 Modernity and Revolutions in Latin America

This course aims to expose students to academic discussions and theories that have had a major influence in the social sciences: topics such as social change, the theory of conflict, and the theory of social revolutions will be used to analyze and compare three Latin American revolutions that have impacted the whole continent: the cases of Mexico, Cuba, and Venezuela (the contemporary revolution inspired in Simon Bolivar’s image). For each case, the course will study the pre-revolutionary social atmosphere, the particular dynamics of the processes, and the post-revolution evolution. For SU PSC majors, this course counts as part of the “Comparative Politics” cluster. (ICP0138)
