HIST 141 SC - Working People in the Americas: Race, Labor, and Organizing


Designed from the perspective of Latin American and Caribbean history, this seminar addresses the resistance strategies of workers who were enslaved and free, rural and urban, female and male, union and non-union. The workers' own voices and analyses are foregrounded. Eduardo Galeano's famous interpretive essay Open Veins of Latin America serves as a narrative thread for the course. Several of the case studies examine relations between workers in Latin America or Caribbean countries and their U.S. employers, as well as Black, Latina and Latino workers in the United States. In other words, this course offers an economic history through the eyes of people who have labored in subhuman conditions.

Course Credit: 1.0
Offered: Every three semesters
