OVERVIEW

The 6-CFU course will present the main features of social and cultural history of Latin America. It will also analyze how Latin-American countries became part of the Western economy and culture. The course follows a thematic-chronological structure starting with the history of pre-Columbian States and ending with the authoritarian regimes of the 20th century. The 9-CFU course includes a monographic part.
