Latin America is a vast region spanning parts of North America, the West Indies and most of Central and South America. The course focuses on understanding the geography of Latin America and its sub-regions, such as the Andean countries, the Southern Cone, the Caribbean and Central America, including Mexico. The course does also analyse the cultural and national features behind the conformation of the region, its sub-regions and its respective nation-states. All this is connected to the economic and geopolitical elements which have impacted on the developments of these geographical spaces. The aim of the course is to deepen the knowledge of how regions, peoples and landscapes take shape and how they change.
