Brief Summary of ProposalThis proposal is to change the title, bulletin description, and number of the course 3400: 472 "Latin America: Origins of Nationality" to 3400: 378 "Colonial Latin America". The new title reflects shifts in the field of Latin American history and better describes the contents of the course. The change in number from a 400 level to a 300 level course is designed to attract more students, both history majors and non-majors, at an earlier stage in their undergraduate careers. The course also contributes to the Latin American Studies Certificate Program, and at the 300 level allows students enrolled in it to familiarize themselves with the region at an earlier stage than a 400 level course would allow. The course surveys the history of Latin America since the period of Spanish and Portuguese colonization in the early sixteenth century to the revolutions of independence in the early nineteenth century. It explores the development of colonial political, economic and religious institutions; the racial and gender hierarchies that emerged in colonial society; and the strategies of resistance and adaptation to colonial rule by various groups.
