This syllabus features field-defining, award-winning books from our Latin American Studies e-book collection that are perfect for courses and scholars. These interdisciplinary titles are at the forefront of environmental studies, Latinx and Chicanx issues, decoloniality, environmental studies, and postcolonial theory. They also address music, art, film, television, and other aspects of popular culture.
