Course Description

The seminar proposes a connected history of the borderlands with the native people in the U.S.-Mexico, Argentina, and Chile during the 19th Century Wars of National Expansion. We follow the interactions of travelers, technicians, and soldiers with Comanches, Kiowas, Apaches, Navajos, etc., and on the South America borders with the Mapuches, Pampas, and Tehuelches, paying attention to how warfare, diplomacy, indigenous social structures, and resistance shaped the formation of modern States. The seminar shows the professor’s own methodological experience in historical research, combining heterogeneous archives alongside disciplines like Anthropology, Archaeology and Geography. Though not required, it would be helpful for the students to have basic Spanish reading level.
