Description: Seminar, one hour. Survey of historical, social, political, and economic conditions in 1930s through 1970s that led to Salvadoran Civil War in 1980. Paying special attention to intersections of race, ethnicity, class, and gender, examination of how Salvadorans have countered erroneous depictions of themselves as passive agents through various forms of activism, such as through peasant mobilizations and political education. As active agents of change, Salvadorans have actively and continuously battled colonial legacies, U.S. intervention and imperialism, and consequences of neoliberal policies. These transnational efforts encompass strong legacy of egalitarian efforts. P/NP grading. Facilitated by Sarai Kashani, with Leisy J. Abrego as faculty mentor.
