A&S 263 Latin American Ethnography

Despite celebrations of regional economic growth, the majority of Latin Americans continue to live in poverty. With an estimated 80% of the Latin American population residing in cities, urban ethnography has become increasingly important. This course explores the contours of urban inequality of Latin America, and among Latin American migrants, focusing on the relationship between broader social and political forces and everyday life. Topics include race, class, gender, public space, violence, labor, informality, and resistance.
