Cross-listed: Global & International Studies; Historical Studies  There is no abstract or timeless Mexican culture. Nor does Mexican history happen independently of its changing cultural contexts. This course explores the complex relationship between history and culture from Mexico’s pre-conquest indigenous origins to the Mexican Revolution and the contemporary nation-state. The course begins with Mexico’s most durable foundational myths, visions, and symbols, such as the image of an eagle grasping a serpent on a cactus on the Mexican flag and the Virgin of Guadalupe. Using primary sources like codices and native language writings as well as anthropological, historical, literary, and poetic texts, it traces the major cultural continuities and revolutions to the present. The goal of the course is to understand the world’s largest Spanish-speaking country, its vibrant history and culture, and its critical relations with the US. Special topics include the Mexican Revolution, religious devotions and wars, indigenous cultures and rights, Mexican death culture, and the Drug War.  LAIS Core Course. Class size: 22
