Based on readings, lectures, experiential activities and discussions, CAR332Y0 examines the cultural and environmental history of Puerto Rico. The course explores debates on colonialism, capitalist modernity, development, ecosystems, religion, race and politics. Such analysis will help with the consideration of Puerto Rico as the last colony of the Americas within the larger context of the Caribbean. The course will include on-site excursions related to the lectures and reading material covered. This course will be taught in English.
