HST5703 - New Approaches to International History

Module code: HST5703

Credits: 15
Semester: 1

Module Convenor: Dr Molly Avery

This module uses a case study approach to explore new approaches to modern international history. This year, the case study is Latin America. Between 1945 and 1990 Latin Americans participated in revolutionary and counterrevolutionary movements, lived under both democracy and dictatorship, and played an important role in some of the most important international transformations of this era. Through this module you will gain an understanding of events in Latin America and the way in which Latin Americans were themselves actors on the global stage. Each week you will be introduced to a different way of doing international history, ranging from transnational, global and ‘south-south’ approaches to thinking about how centring gender, culture, and non-state actors can teach us about the tumultuous changes that occurred in Latin America – and across the globe – in this period.
