Perspectives on Race in Latin America 

This module examines what race is, how it matters, and why it is so central to Latin America, past and present. It considers how race operates as identity, as a political category, and under capitalism to ask what the various experiences and uses of race mean for Latin America as it is lived today. In specific, this means considering how theories of race, explicit or implicit race-based policies, and race inform community, among other possibilities.
