SPA480.12 Asia and Latin America

Taught in Spanish at Pontificia Universidad Católica; may not be offered every semester. Students in this course will undertake an analysis of different Asian societies and their relationships with Latin America from the geographical, spatial, political, and cultural perspectives of both regions and develop an appreciation for how both societies have been integrated into the world economy. The course thus seeks to promote understanding of the “other” and encourages a holistic view of socio-territorial problems through a combination of lectures, the “flipped classroom,” case studies, and bibliographic work. Activities will be evaluated individually and in groups, with an emphasis on the ability of students to critically reflect on the subject.
