HIST 4301 Mexican Revolution (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This course is an in-depth study of the Mexican Revolution, one of the most important developments in Latin America and the world's first social revolution of the twentieth century. Although we will focus on the years of revolutionary violence (1910-1917), the course begins with Mexican independence in 1810 and traces the roots of the Mexican Revolution through the pre-Revolutionary Porfiriato (1867-1910). We will also focus on the socioeconomic and political impact in the post-Revolutionary period between 1920-1940. In short, the Mexican Revolution will be a vehicle for studying the emergence of the modern Mexican nation.
