LATINAM 248: Racial and Gender Inequalities in Latin America

This course explores the intersection between racial and gender inequalities in Latin America focusing on the historical pattern of racism, sexism and discrimination, and on the political and social changes that have enabled Afro-descendants and women to achieve social rights in some countries of the region such as Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Uruguay. The first part of this course introduces the struggle of political movements taking into consideration the historical process of race and gender discrimination. It will address not only the history of blacks¿ and women's movements in the 20th century, but also racism and sexism as cultural and institutional elements that configure inequality in those countries. Socio-economic indicators, race and gender-based violence, and political participation will be analyzed. The second part of this course examines the most recent discourses about women and afro-descendant rights, and their political framework. It evaluates how they have changed public opinion, laws and the social, institutional and political environment of Latin America. Finally, this course discusses the ability of Afro-descendants and women movements to navigate in the current political climate and advance their rights.nCourse will be taught in Portuguese.

LATINAM 268VP: Democracy, crisis and disease: Covid-19 and Indigenous People in Latin America.

Amplified by the racism and inequality inherent to the Latin American states, the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a significant toll in the health and lives of indigenous peoples of the region. Alongside the pandemic, indigenous communities face a crisis of governance and democracy that has led to the rise of authoritarian measures meant to suppress dissent, processes of organization and autonomy. As COVID-19, poverty, inequality, racism, violence, and extractive projects continue to encroach on indigenous lives, this course will analyze a query posed by indigenous peoples: that perhaps coronavirus is not the cause of the crisis, but rather, it is the harvest of what the capitalist system has sown throughout centuries.
