Students will read part of Theorizing Race in the Americas by Juliet Hooker. Please read Part I Ambas Americas: chapter 1: A Black Sister to Massachusetts: Latin America and the Fugitive Democratic Ethos Frederick Douglass and also read Part II Mestizo Futurism: chapter IV ” A Doctrine that Nourished the Hopes of the Nonwhite Races”: Vasconcelos, Mestizajes’s Travels and US Latino Politics. Also, students should read the Introduction and conclusion of the book. Students will write a one thousand word essay on what are the major arguments that Hooker is making about Douglass and Vasconcelos? Do you agree with her argument or do you disagree? As usual, it is not important whether you agree or disagree with the evidence you use to make your argument. Please cite your work using MLA formatting. Please cite inside of the text and at the end have a bibliography of works cited. Obviously, to make an argument you will need examples to prove your points. Ultimately the subtext of your essay should give us insight into the nuances of how race and racism were constructed in the time of Frederick Douglass and Jose Vasconcelos in Latin America and the United States. Just to recap students will read the intro, chapter 1, chapter 4, and the conclusion of the Hooker book. Also, students can use outside sources but under no circumstances should outside sources replace the focus which is the book. You must show mastery of the text that you are required to read.
Based on: Mark A. Burkholder, Monica Rankin, and Lyman L. Johnson, Exploitation, Inequality, and Resistance: A History of Latin America since Columbus (New York, NY: Oxford University Press, 2018), 280. Analyze the emergence of “populism in (modern) Latin America in the early twentieth century. For this analysis, include examples that reflect on the participation of immigrants, the working classes, and the cases of early populism in Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile.

Make it clear to the reader (instructor) that you read the text carefully. Write a thesis statement (central argument) in your introduction, then develop the thesis and provide historical evidence (body of the text), and end with a closing h
2016 Colombian Peace process finally ended a 50 year civil war with the FARC guerrilla, but on the plebiscite the “no” won even though “yes” had all the projections in its favor and was the clear favorite to win.

Choosing a thematic essay means that you are specifically interested in a specific topic and the way it is expressed through art because you were able to grasp how it illuminates an aspect of the Latin American experience.

STILL: you will keep the 40% descriptive analysis ratio to 60% content. However, you will divide the 40% more or less equally between the number of art works you are dealing with…
