The course will provide a brief introduction to the history of gender in Latin America. It focuses on the multiple manners in which masculinities and femininities have been constructed and experienced since the conquest until today. We will examine a variety of issues such as labour and family relations, sexuality, religion, education, and the evolution of political and civil rights in order to learn how women - and men - have created their gendered identities. We will also discuss how other categories, like race, class, and ethnicity have contributed to the experience of gender. The course incorporates the use of a variety of primary and secondary sources, as well as in-class presentations and discussions in order to further the understanding of how gender has become a crucial category for historical analysis.

The University of Belgrano utilizes a 45-minute contact hour whereas the United States higher education system utilizes a 50-minute contact hour. All University of Belgrano courses represent the 45 contact hour amount and an estimated US credit calculation based on the contact hours. Each University of Belgrano transcript will include the number of hours per week and the weeks in the semester, so US universities may calculate the appropriate number of US credits for students.
