PPR337: Society and Politics in Latin America
Tutor: Julie Hearn and Amalendu Misra
This module is interdisciplinary in nature, in the sense that it includes several approaches to study the Society and Politics in Latin America. It is designed on thematic issues that bind all the 21 member nations of the Latin America in one form or another. The primary aim of this module is to introduce students to an understudied region in the world. This is done through introducing them to various themes in Latin American Politics. This module is designed for students, who have already had some grounding on politics of development, conflict and peace, religion and culture and also aimed at those who wish to develop an area studies specialisation in their intellectual quest.
