This course focuses on the history of Latin America through overlapping lenses of race, sexuality, gender, and class. Specific topics include sexuality and the Inquisition, reproductive health and the state, gender and revolution, sexual repression in dictatorship. Discussions of historical context, power structures, and intersectionality will serve as the starting point for the semester. Thereafter we will divide our time between analysis of primary historical texts and cutting edge scholarship.
