Honor, Race, Gender , Class


About the Course:

Explores the intersectionality of honor, gender, race, and class during the colonial period and the nineteenth century, in the Americas, with an emphasis in Iberoamerica. Looks into the ways in which these notes, ideas, or concepts served as a metaphor for policies, rights, inclusion, and discrimination. Through the reading of secondary and primary sources, we explore ways in which women and men from different backgrounds and ethnicities negotiated, internalized and resisted hegemonic, imposed assumptions about their honor or lack of it. Lastly, we consider ways in which the sequels of these assumptions linger up to the present and shape the way we perceive one another.


No pre-requisites have been entered for this course.
