SP3088: CITIZENSHIP IN LATIN AMERICA A (2021-2022)

Last modified: 31 May 2022 13:05


Course Overview

This course asks what it means to be a citizen in Latin America (though with a focus on Mexico). It will combine history and ethnography. Citizenship is often described as rights-bearing membership in nation-states, and we will see that this has been important in Latin America, past and present. However, we will draw on a variety of readings, including the lecturer's own ethnography, to see that there has been more to citizenship than this.

Course Description

This course focuses on the principles and practices of citizenship across Latin America. It begins with the history of citizenship in colonial times before looking at the nationalisation of citizenship in the nineteenth century. The second half of the course focuses on the "citizen-ization" of Latin American society and politics by which government and many social movements have come to emphasise the importance of treating people as citizens and of promoting citizenship. The readings will show, however, that citizenship has been understood differently at different times and places.
