How did race and ethnicity become among the most important dimensions
of identity in Latin America?  How have racial and ethnic boundaries
been perceived and enforced by European Americans, African Americans,
and Native Americans?  How have ideas about race and ethnicity
changed over time?  How have visions of race and ethnicity been used
to construct national identities in Latin America? Why and how have
racial and ethnic identities resurged in Latin American politics and
art in recent years? This course is designed to introduce students to
the kinds of questions historians pose about identities and
boundaries.
