Course Description: 

This course challenges our pre-conceived maps of the world, highlighting Latin America's place within our understanding of modernity as a product of transnational interconnections. Transversing the Atlantic, this course traces the interactions of capitalism and culture, science and aesthetics, and the ideologies that informed and formed the urban fabric and spatial politics of important cities in the modern Latin world - Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Havana, and Brasilia.
