Course Description

This seminar will introduce graduate students to selected topics in the scholarly literature concerning gender in Latin America from pre-contact to the 19th century. This sweep included the initial encounters between indigenous and Iberian worlds, conquest and early colonization, the formation of the mature colonial society, and republican alternations. An central focus will be to trace historiographical, methodological, and processual currents as historians and social scientists explore gender parallelisms, indigenous resistance and accommodation, patriarchy, sexuality, courtship, family formation/breakup, elite and plebeian honor, public and private spheres, caste politics, masculinities, gendered institutions, and republican variants.
