Solidarity Economy in Latin America

Spring 2022  | GEOG-G 474/540

This course seeks to trace the histories, practices, and realities of solidarity economies throughout Latin America. We consider solidarity economy as a broad eco-system of values, relationships, and activities that advance an alternative framework of development centered on equity, cooperation, solidarity, self-management, and democracy. We will collaborate with students from the University of Virginia (UVA) and graduate students from the Universidade Federal do Paraná (Federal University of Paraná or UFPR) in Brazil in the creation and development of a podcast, which will be one of the main assignments of the course.
