Core Course: MPhil in Latin American Studies

The Core Course provides a forum for interdisciplinary debate in which all students on the MPhil participate, with the guidance of staff from across a range of disciplines. 

The course aims to provide you with a preliminary understanding of historical and current issues affecting a region you may not have studied systematically beforehand, together with an introduction to the disciplinary variety of Latin American Studies and to a range of conceptual frameworks which have shaped scholarship on this region, both in the past and in current-day research. 

Preparatory reading is required for each of the seminars.
