GEOG 249 - Regional Geography of Latin America

Cross-Listed as LATI 249 
This class provides an introduction to the geography of Latin America - its peoples and environments - that looks at the importance of place as a way to understand a region. This geographical approach involves investigating the changing relationships among places, peoples, and ideas, and how these relationships define and influence a particular region. As such, the class considers some of the forces that have shaped, and continue to influence, contemporary Latin America and its relations with the rest of the world: the natural environment, the people, the economy, politics, urbanization and migration, and environment and development. Each of these topics is explored independently and in ways that emphasize inter-relationships among topics. Fall semester. (4 Credits)
