Peruvian History and Culture


The course will be centered in two axes: one in Peruvian History, and the other in Peruvian Literature. We will approach certain aspects of Peruvian culture, as well as sociological and economic elements in connection with the proposed axes. Gender and race issues will be covered as well, in a perspective that in different moments dialogue more broadly with the Latin American scene.

The course will provide the student with a wide spectrum of Peruvian culture and history, since the Pre-Columbian times to the present. Certain issues will be connected with Latin America for much of Peruvian historical and cultural unfolding is interwoven with the events of the subcontinent. Thus, the student will have an adequate overview of Peru and may eventually pursue aspects of the country that may fulfill his/her interests.
