Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Veissiere is a very intense and deep thinker with a lot of experience in the field in Latin America. He will challenge you to think more critically about the narratives you've heard about Latin America and about anthropology in general.
This course really provides you with insider knowledge about the history of anthropology in Latin America and how the discipline has evolved. Sam has great case studies, though he specifically really loves his theorists. You will learn a lot about the theories.
