ANTH 1141 - Indigenous Imperialism on the Andes: The Inca Realm and its People Course uri icon



  • Uses archaeological and anthropological approaches to the study of non-Western imperialism examining the origins of inequality and marginalization in Indigenous pre-European empires and their maintenance during European colonialism. We will use the Inca Empire, the largest Indigenous political system of the American continent by 1530 AD. Learning about the Indigenous and Spanish cultural heritage of South America will equip the students to appreciate present-day Latin America societies with an anthropological perspective.
