Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course deals with the formation of borders between the Central American states and Mexico during the 19th and 20th centuries. Considering that until today there are several notions to demarcate a border between various nation-states, the course will elaborate concepts such as territory or frontier in their the political, ethnic, social and cultural perspectives. The seminar will be structured in the context of the 4th Cátedra Friedrich Katz which is going to be held at the University of Vienna from October 18 to 19, 2018. It is recommended that students participate at the conference.

Assessment and permitted materials

By applying a guided research method, the students will work on scientific texts in the context of the central topic of the course.

In addition, a high level of self-initiative, independent as well as collective work in a group is required.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
