This course focuses on political and social change and its instrumental role in the formation of national identity. Drawing mainly on historic sources, the course analyzes the cases of Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia and Argentina. Students will get familiar not only with the political system and parties but also with the uprising of new social actors and protest movements and prospects resulting from the dialogue between states, societies and social forces. The course will also address the role citizenship and institutions play in democracy nowadays and the effect the succession of repressive military dictatorships had in relation to memory.

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.
