Spring 2022 History GU4229: POLITICS & SEXUALITY IN THE COLD WAR

Call Number: 14341 
Points: 4   View in Vergil
Day/Time: W 2:10pm-4:00pm 
Location: To be announced
Instructor: Prof. Isabella Cosse

Description: The course presents new approaches for revisiting the study of this key period, moving away from more conventional angles to focus on global dynamics by looking at Latin America through the lens of sexuality and family. From this perspective, it will map out different problems and it will prompt a stimulating debate, allowing for discussions on generational as well as gender clashes, everyday life, and affective and emotional bonds, but also on the political strategies of the forces in conflict, public policies and cultural interventions. Discussions will underline interpretative and methodological dilemmas in relation with the historical reconstruction. Particularly, it will consider the relation between political and socio-cultural processes and the connection between the “longue durée” and contingency of the historical events.

The course will allow students to explore these problems by themselves and promote their active participation, requesting different type of production from them such as oral intervention, an essay, etc. To sum up, this course offers the opportunity to rethink the Cold War, which still stir sensitivities and which is part of the political agenda even today, in a deeper and more complex way.

Spring 2022 Portuguese GU4468: Race, Law, and Culture in Latin America

Call Number: 13746 
Points: 3   View in Vergil
Day/Time: MW 11:40am-12:55pm 
Location: 802 International Affairs Building
Instructor: Silvio L. de Almeida, Tinker Visiting Professor

Description: This interdisciplinary course explores how the socio-economic, cultural, and legal foundations, institutions, and politics of the Latin America were shaped by the legacy of slavery and structural racism. It covers the origin of the political and juridical systems of selected Latin American countries, including Haiti, Cuba, and Brazil, with a focus on how race set the limits of and impeded the exercise of popular citizenship. Adopting an Afro-diasporic perspective, more specifically the idea of “Amefricanidade” (by Lelia Gonzalez), the course will illuminate the political and cultural situation in Latin American and Caribbean countries.

The definition of law used in this course is not limited to understanding law as a “system of rules”. We will work on law as part of the historical dynamics of socioeconomic life and culture in the Latin American countries analyzed. Thus, the course will analyze more specifically how race relations and practices of popular citizenship have shaped legal and extralegal spheres, including ways that cultural production, performance, and embodied practices have reshaped and negotiated Latin America's legal systems.

The course will provide an overview of the relationship between racial issues and the formation of legal institutions in Latin America, with an emphasis on Brazil, Cuba and Haiti, given the strong African presence, black culture, African diasporic religiosity, and the socioeconomic impacts of slavery and structural racism in the social formation of these countries, which can serve as a comparative model for analysis with other countries in Latin America and the Southern United States

Spring 2022 Curriculum & Teaching 5199: Latin American Educational Thought: Social and Cultural Traditions and Quarrels

Call Number: 59597
Points: 3   
Day/Time: Thursday 7:20pm - 9:00pm
Location: 
Instructor: Pablo Pineau, Tinker Visiting Professor

Description: The aim of this course is to analyze the debates about the “originality” and “autonomy” of pedagogical thought in a long series of Latin American educational initiatives and reflections from the times of Independence in the early 19th Century to the present. The goal is not to search for an “immanent essence” or a “true nature” to be conserved, but rather as a heavily-invested issue that demands to be problematized through different approaches in the frame both of regional and trans-national politics, and cultural and educational debates, where historical and theoretical research seems to be privileged.
