HIST 84 History of Brazil

This course covers the history of Brazil from Portuguese contact with the indigenous populations in 1500 until the present. Following a general chronological sequence, the lectures, readings, and discussion treat various selected topics of importance in the political, economic, social, intellectual, and cultural development of Brazil. The principal objective is to chart conflict, change, and continuity within Brazilian society and to come to understandings of their causes, interactions, and consequences.

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.
