During this semester, there are a couple things that I would like to learn in this class. The most important thing is that I would like to learn more about how Latin America, and its colonization, impacted the European world, as in previous classes I’ve mostly only learned of its impact on the United States. Understanding its impact is vital to understanding how it shaped the world as we know it today, and I would like to learn more about this.
I would also like to learn more from the points of view of the natives, as I have generally only read and looked at European documents and ideas before now. Understanding diverse cultures and ideals will help me to open my eyes, and look at things from a new angle.
