CONQUEST OF THE AMERICAS: AZTECS, MAYA AND INCAS
Credit points: 15
In this historically based Latin American Studies subject, students address the discovery and conquest of the Americas as a turning point in history. The New World and its defeated indigenous people were transformed to such a degree that today we have to painstakingly piece together what life was like in the Americas before the arrival of Columbus and the wholesale destruction and plunder of the continent. In this subject students study the Aztecs and Maya of Mexico and the Incas of Peru both before and after the conquest.
