This course will trace the environmental history of Latin America. Beginning with the Pre-Columbian era, the course will move on to examine the intertwining of environmental , social, and cultural transformations brought about by the conquest of the Americas by Europeans, and finally the environmental and related social repercussions of the emergence of modernity, urbanization, and industrialization in the era of independence. The course will focus not only on environmental change, its causes and social repercussions, but equally on examining cultural attitudes and ideas to environment and the changes that these ideas have undergone at different phases in Latin America's history.
