DEVM 524 - Politics & Society in Lat Amer
This course analyzes the social and political heritages of the five “Latin Americas”--Mexico, the Spanish Caribbean and Central America, Andean societies, Brazil, and the Southern Cone--in comparative perspective with North America and the English Caribbean. It then examines the changes in the patterns of social and political action resulting from the exhaustion of the state-centered matrices in the 1980s. More specifically, the course analyzes how the weakening of authoritarian political values and the erosion of the networks of collective solidarity has transformed the links among culture, political society, and civil society.
