Cultural Politics and Indigenous Peoples in Latin America

This course introduces intellectual debates about the historical and ethnographical world of indigenous populations in Latin America, focusing on how politically powerful outsiders have impacted these groups from pre-Columbian times to the present. Students will also analyze how indigenous ontologies influence knowledge, identity, and the role that they play when confronted by Western modernity through its different projects such as development, land reform, neoliberalism, environmental struggles, gender, democratization, autonomy, and migration.
