  • Overview

    This course provides a survey of the history of race in Argentina from pre-conquest times to our days. A large and geographically diverse nation, Argentina presents numerous and marked differences that have privileged certain racial constructions over others. By exploring the experiences and identities of different sectors of its heterogeneous population, the course will provide a voice to those who have traditionally been excluded from the historical process. By focusing on the indigenous and black population, and on the labouring classes this course will demonstrate how they contributed to the development and construction of the Argentine nation
