HIS 7.4 Vertiefungsmodul Lateinamerika

(VF, PF, KF) 12 CP

Visions and Revisions of Latin America and Its History

VAKTitel der VeranstaltungDozentIn
08-28-HIS-7.4.1Envisioning Latin America in Sickness and in Health: Historic Narratives of Endemic Diseases, Epidemics and Pandemics in the Americas / C (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Mo 16:00 - 18:00 (2 SWS)

Latin America is presently suffering like no other continent because of the pandemic and has registered extraordinarily high infection rates with covid-19. This equals a public health disaster of hitherto unimagined proportions which seems to contradict historic experience: Latin America has always been conceived as a continent of breathtaking natural beauty and stunning prosperity. Here, men and women could make a decent and happy living. Even more, this part of the Americas was conceived as as a special place and “idea” which we will examine as an introduction to the seminar.
Nevertheless, at the same time, natural disasters and epidemics have been occurring regularly, seemingly holding the continent and its’ people back. The indigenous population was hit hard after first contact with Europeans by contagious diseases which would continue to haunt even the nation states.
In this class we will revise and discuss important literature and historic debates on the history of health. The seminar will be held in English, the final exam will consist of two short essays to be written in English which will comment on recent literature and research.

First readings:

Armus, Diego: The Ailing City. Health, Tuberculosis, and Culture in Buenos Aires, 1870-1950, Durham & London: Duke University Press 2011.

McNeill, J.R.: Mosquito Empires. Ecology and War in the Greater Caribbean, 1620-1914, Cambridge etc.: Cambridge University Press 2010.

Tenorio Trillo, Mauricio: Latin America. The Allure and Power of an Idea, Chicago & London: University of Chicago Press 2017.

Description:
This seminar will analyze classic texts and contemporary interpretations on Brazil and Latin American History. It will focus on four main thematic axes: 1. economic development and social inequalities; 2. racism and social life; 3. cinema and audiovisual market; 4. literature and political culture. The seminar will be a combination of lectures based on the proposed literature for each session, class discussions and small presentations (Vorträge) by the students on specific topics connected to the reading material (as Studienleistung). International guest speakers are also expected to talk on specific themes related to the course. Classes take place every other week to allow students to work on a large volume of readings and produce insightful/meaningful comments, as well as actively engage in each class. Classes start on Nov 6, 2020 (introductory class) and run through Feb 19, 2021 (last session). To be eligible for the 12 CP (12 ECTS) students must write a small essay or project on one of the topics addressed during the course (15-20p.). All literature will be offered in English, although students are allowed to search for German translations. Final term papers/projects can be written in German. Oral presentations in class must be conducted in English.

Das Kolloquium dient Lehrenden, Forschenden und Studierenden zum Austausch über aktuelle Forschungsvorhaben, neue Ansätze und Ergebnisse in der Osteuropäischen Geschichte. Etablierte Wissenschaftler*innen, aber auch Doktorand*innen stellen in einem 45minütigen Vortrag ihre aktuelle Arbeit vor, die dann in weiteren 45 Minuten von uns diskutiert wird. Alle Studierenden und Lehrenden sind herzlich eingeladen. Das genaue Programm mit Namen und Vortragstiteln finden Sie auf der Homepage der Forschungsstelle Osteuropa http://www.forschungsstelle.uni-bremen.de/ unter „Veranstaltungen“.
Beginn: Die Vortragsreihe beginnt erst in der 2. Semesterwoche. Wir treffen uns aber bereits am ersten Dienstag, um zu besprechen, wie man Fragen zu einem wissenschaftlichen Vortrag stellt, welche Arten von Fragen es gibt und wie man seine Scheu überwindet, in so einem Kolloquium zu sprechen.
