The collapse of the Spanish-American empire in the early nineteenth century may have ended formal political ties across the Atlantic, but three hundred years of shared history cast a long shadow across the newly-independent countries in the Americas, as much as it did in Spain. This course examines the history of Spain and its colonies from the Bourbon reforms to the 1990s, focusing on common themes such as the role of the Church, the role of the military, land distribution and regional rivalries.
