HIST 237 - Gender and Sexuality in Latin America


FDR: HU Humanities Distribution
Credits: 3

This course examines how gender and sexuality shaped Latin American history from the late colonial period to the current day. Class materials cover themes such as femininity, masculinity, queerness, machismo, and transgender experiences that intersect with topics of nation-building, suffrage, racial equality, religion, authoritarian governments, and revolutions. Through an interdisciplinary approach, students will learn about regional patterns as well as specific case studies. Students will study gender-related laws that highlight local developments as well as regional conversations about gender and sexuality, culminating in a gender code group project.
