Courses

Gender Sexuality and Social Change

This internship-based, three-credit course is an introduction to power dynamics in social movements. Focusing on issues about women, gender, sexuality, and power, students will first reflect on how, by denaturalizing the connection between sex and gender, we can analyze these axes of oppression/resistance in their intersection with race, class, and ability. Following two months of classes, one-month internships will take place at Norte—a printing press under worker control—and at CUSAM—Sociology Major at the San Martin State Penitentiary—.

International Trade in Latin America

This course deals with the following topics: international trade in earlier economic thought; static comparative advantage and traditional neoclassical theory of international trade; new theories; the structuralist school, CEPAL, unequal exchange theory; balance of payments constraints, exchange rates theories and the unbalanced productive structures; neo-structuralism and neo-Schumpeterian economics; globalization and multicultural trade agreements; regional and trade blocs; and international crisis.

Latin American History

A comprehensive course examining major political, geographical, social and economic features of Latin American past and present. Key issues which may divide or unite the distinctive Latin American countries will be highlighted.

Politics in Latin America

This course will focus on the recent social uprisings in Latin America as part of a new cycle of politics from below in the region. Discussion of different cases and the connection of those experiences with the emergence of the so called progressive governments. We will attempt to situate social movements and struggles in Latin America as material precedents of what has been translated into a mandate for a series of anti-adjustment, anti-austerity policies, and as an opening on an institutional plane for negotiating certain demands and social conquests in the region.
