Monday and Wednesday: 2:55-4:10

Professor Raymond Craib

This course examines the history of Chile from the 1700s to the present, always with an appreciation for its place in a broader world but always also with attention to its regional and national specificities and its links to the Pacific. Lectures will be paired with readings from various genres: fiction, poetry, journalism, manifestos, speeches, historical monographs, and short stories. The course includes an optional 7 to 10 day trip to Chile during spring break, March 28-April 4, 2020.
