HST 372 - From Slavery to Freedom
Ironically, modern concepts of freedom emerged from societies deeply invested in its opposite, slavery. This course looks at the history of slavery and its abolition in three Latin American societies, Haiti, Cuba, and Brazil, to distinguish the distinctive ways in which each of them defined and constructed freedom. Part of the Human Rights Issue. Cross-listed with LAS 372. Prerequisite: Junior standing.
