HIST-2205A History of Colombia

The program proposed includes a broad outlook of the Colombian 20th century, which enables us to see the elements configuring the structure and functioning of the country´s political organization in different periods, taking into account the dynamic scenario of the economic activity and its subsequent effects on social organization. The content of the program focuses on discourses about modernity and development, to observe through their formulation and application, three wide aspects: politics, economy, and grassroots movements. It is about achieving an approach in which at least three components of society development can be integrated. The program intends to provide students, from a historical point of view, with the judgment elements enabling them to successfully read the complex current scenario, to identify the structural characteristics determining the evolution of the most remarkable problems in Colombia and studying the proposals of different governments to solve such problems.
