SN 382 - Women Against the Current in Latin America

(3.00 cr.)

Discusses important events in the recent history of four Latin American countries (Mexico, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Uruguay) as reflected in the personal histories and testimony of women. In the case of Ecuador and Guatemala, the focus is on the experience of Quichua and Mayan women in their struggle to overcome the discrimination encountered in many aspects of their lives, including the family, the community and the larger political arena. The cases of Mexico and Uruguay offer the opportunity to examine two important political events in the history of these two countries: the struggle against the dictatorship in Uruguay and the social impact of widespread violence in Mexico in recent years. Both cases are recounted from the perspective of imprisoned women who have spoken about their lives and dreams.

Prerequisite: SN 203  or SN 217 ; and one additional SN 300-level course.
Sessions Typically Offered: Fall/Spring
Years Typically Offered: Varies
