HIST 4361 Slaves, Soldiers and Citizens: Afro-Latin America (Fall: 3 )

The course examines the impact of slavery on the Americas, shifting the focus outside of the United States. We will examine the growth of the modern plantation in the 19th century (especially in Brazil and Cuba), examine the various paths to abolition we see throughout Latin America, and through a series of case studies, examine various forms of African-American identity and community. Additionally, we will look at the comparative abolition of slavery in the U.S. and Cuba as well the role of race in the struggle between Haitians and Dominicans on the island of Hispaniola.
