Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course analyses Latin American and Caribbean political thought.

The course will be divided into two parts:

In the first part, we will link ideas of 17th and 18th century liberalism to the justification or rejection of European colonialism and expansion. We will analyse the texts of Enlightenment writers such as Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. We will also examine Karl Marx's ambivalent views on colonialism.

In the second part of the course, we will critically analyse the Latin American and Caribbean counter-discourses, some of which draw on the above-mentioned European philosophers.
We will look at the anti-imperial and seminal text of "Our America" by José Martí. We will also discuss the canonical texts of authors such as Aime Cesaire, Frantz Fanon and Leopoldo Zea.
