    Deze multidisciplinaire cursus introduceert de studenten in het veld van de Latijns Amerikanistiek. De collegereeks is dan ook bedoeld voor studenten die nog geen colleges over Latijns Amerika hebben gevolgd.
    De colleges gaan voornamelijk in op historische, culturele, sociale, economische en politieke ontwikkelingen op het continent en worden gegeven door verschillende docenten verbonden aan het CEDLA. Er wordt zowel gesproken over het platteland als over de stedelijke ontwikkeling. Naast colleges met een algemene inhoud zijn er ook enige specialistisch thema’s opgenomen en worden aan het einde van de reeks enkele landen uitgelicht.
    De cursus kan eenvoudig worden gecombineerd met andere cursussen op het CEDLA die later in het programma worden aangeboden. + info
