HIST 175A 1 Topics in Latin American History
[ nw ss wi ]
See Course Catalog for Special Notes
Topic for spring 2015: Freedom & Slavery in Latin America and the Caribbean Explore this particular relationship between slavery and freedom in the lives and experiences of Africans and African descended people, as well as the experience of slavery and freedom for Indigenous populations in Latin America. What drove transitions from Indian to African slavery in American societies? What did freedom look like in the Americas during the 17th and 18th centuries (before most slave systems in the Western world were abolished) ? How did Indians and Africans relate to each other in captivity and in freedom? What are we to make of the fact that slavery seemed to expand in places like Brazil, Cuba, and the US South in the 19th century after the Haitian Revolution, the abolition of the slave trade, and widespread emancipation in other parts of the Americas? These are some of the questions that we will explore in this course.
