A survey course on Latin America from Conquest through Independence. Topics included exploration of: 1) how Spain and Portugal conquered and colonised the Americas, 2) how they managed to maintain control over those colonies, 3) how the colonised (Indians, Africans, and mixed races) responded to the imposition of colonial rule, 4) the role of women and gender in colonial settings, and 5) the implications of colonialism for the study of modern Latin America.
I learned about the cultures and varied history of Latino communities in the USA and used my Spanish language skills through service with local Hispanic communities. I explored specific questions on education and representation of Mexican Americans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans and Central-Americans. I also analysed texts, evaluated films and documentaries, and wrote journals reflecting on my experiences with the Latinos I worked with.
An examination of the basic assumptions and methods of analysis employed in microeconomic theory, including demand analysis, production and cost relationships, market structures, distribution theory, general equilibrium and welfare economics.
Training and refining of all skills, with an emphasis on pronunciation and oral communication. Conducted in French.
Important cultural characteristics and productions from both Latin America and Spain. This course offered a historical framework to identify, analyse and contrast fundamental cultural themes, actors and events. I developed analytical and critical skills to understand similarities and differences between Spain and Latin America.
An examination of the determinants of Gross Domestic Product, the unemployment rate and the price level. The components of aggregate spending consumption, investment, foreign trade and government will be examined to determine their significance for explaining the business cycle. Similarly the financial side of the economy and the role of money will be examined to determine their impact on the business cycle. The purpose of each examination is to understand the factors that move the economy and how fiscal and monetary policy can be used to alter the course of economic trends.
