New Course Supplement 2016


LACS 50.15 Cuba in the Black Atlantic: Slavery and its Legacies

Among the first territories colonized by the Spanish Empire, Cuba was a main hub of the Atlantic slave trade from the sixteenth through the nineteenth century. Over one million African slaves were trafficked to this Caribbean island. With Cuba as our main port of entry, this course introduces students to the history of African diasporic societies and politics in Latin America and the Caribbean from the late colonial period to the twentieth century. Often treated as figures with no political vision or power, black people were long relegated to the margins of our understandings of history.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:SOC; WCult:NW

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
