HIST 048 SC - Gender and Testimony in Latin America and the Caribbean

The course is structured around pathbreaking texts that are life histories of non-elite women or "testimonies." Through testimony we will explore problems of theory and analysis addressing feminism, womynism, racial justice, and economic dignity, as well as the queering of revolution in 21st century Latin America and the Caribbean. Today, African and Indigenous gender identities lie at the heart of movements for justice that have won national power. This region of the world with 600 million people has lifted 70 million people out of poverty in recent decades, thanks to the organizing of women such as those whose words we will read and hear in this course.

Course Credit: 1.0
