4. Course Description:

This interdisciplinary course explores the cultural, historical and social realities which together form contemporary Mexico.  By studying the roots (Aztec, Toltec, Olmec, etc) through the Spanish colonization (Cortés to 1910) and current U.S./ Mexico relations (economic, social, immigration), we see the evolution of these two neighbor countries.  Through comparing history, politics, economics and the sociological interrelationships, students will better understand the complexity of current  U.S./ Mexico events and local community building with immigrant populations.
