Spring semester, 2011 Barrows Hall, rm. 291

Ruth Berins Collier Office Hours: Thurs. 4:00-6:00

This course offers a survey of the political science literature on Latin American politics. The
goal is to build on students’ empirical knowledge of Latin American countries, to explore the
central themes and issues that have animated the literature on Latin American politics, and to
encourage students to begin to think about how they might design and execute research that
would contribute to scholarship on the region. Most seminar discussions will be led by students,
and students are expected to prepare carefully and to participate actively in each of our
meetings.

During most of our meetings, two students will be responsible for leading the seminar. These
leaders will direct a critical discussion of the assigned readings that is focused on the chief
theoretical, conceptual, empirical and methodological contributions of these readings. All other
students will come to seminar prepared both to make their own critical comments and to
participate in the conversation generated by discussion leaders.

Over the course of the semester, students are expected to write 7 short response papers (3-4
pages each) on the assigned texts. Students enrolled in PhD programs should describe a
research project or research design based on a question that emerges from the substantive
issues of that week. The purpose of this assignment is to encourage students to avoid the
temptation to “consume” this literature passively, and to adopt instead a more active posture as
they familiarize themselves with key issues and debates. Students who are not enrolled in PhD
programs have the option of either describing a research project/research design or writing a
more traditional, synthetic response to the readings (i.e. one that does not pose a research
question or propose a research design). Students may choose the 7 weeks they wish for these
papers. Two hard copies of each paper are due at the beginning of the class with the
corresponding readings.

In these papers, students are not expected to go beyond the assigned readings. Although they
are free to do so, their papers must reflect a solid grounding in the assigned texts. In lieu of
writing a separate, stand-alone term paper, these short weekly papers will be graded together
as a single, cumulative, multi-part term paper at the end of the semester. Great care and effort
should be put into these papers, and students are encouraged to come to office hours to
discuss them. One such discussion is mandatory, and the student should choose the paper/s
that s/he would like to discuss.

Grades in the course are thus based on three components:


1) performance as discussion leader
2) participation in weekly discussions
3) weekly assignments, graded cumulatively as a seminar paper

Students should acquire a copy of Collier and Collier, Shaping the Political Arena, which is
available for purchase at the bookstore or online. All other readings are either journal articles
that students can access electronically or book chapters/unpublished manuscripts that will be
posted to bspace.
