Program Description:
logo Queensmtns fogStudents will explore the questions of how historical and philosophical discourses, the arts, and media function in society, transmitting and/or questioning cultural and social values and ideals. The role of a liberal arts education in shaping such values has been a key battleground in the US culture wars of the past two decades. Three of the most prominent developments have been a reconsideration of the definition and issues of truth in the humanities and social sciences, an emphasis on the ideological implications of studying cultures and values, and the role that race, ethnicity, class, gender, language, sexual orientation, belief, play in shaping social values. This course will employ the new model of cultural studies at it introduces students to the pre-colonial, colonial, and modern cultures of the southern Andean region, with emphasis on what is today Peru. European, Latin American, and indigenous American perspective are presented through primary and secondary material, allowing students to examine the formation and evolution of cultural and political institutions in Peru within international and global contexts. Through a final essay, students will demonstrate their understanding of historical, economic, and social factors influencing this relationship.


3 credits, SPAN 45.  This course fulfills Perspective Goals in the Area of Culture and Values and the Queens College Core Area of World Cultures and Global Issues (WGGI).
