Source: Tulane University Howard-Tilton Memorial Library. Early Images of Latin America Collection
This assignment values quality over quantity in analysis. The maximum word limit is 600.
For many years, New Orleans was one of the most important ports connecting the United States and Latin America. As a result, many merchants and companies with interests in Latin America were based in New Orleans (the infamous United Fruit Company was headquartered there for many years). Over time, these collections were donated to Tulane University which now boasts some of the best collections of Latin American images from 1850 to about 1950. Your task is to select one visual source from the late-nineteenth century or early-twentieth century of Latin American history and to analyze its context based on your understanding of the class lectures and reading.
Besides selecting an image, no outside research is required for this assignment. In fact, I would discourage you to do so; it’s better to focus on analyzing the source that you have selected than finding supplemental material. Instead draw upon the textbook, information in lecture, and materials found in the Problems in Modern Latin American History collection.
In particular, you should chose images that address some of the critical themes we have discussed in module 2 of class which include (but aren’t limited to): the rise of liberal political projects, the expansion of Latin America’s export-oriented economy, rising neo-colonialism, and debates over race, nation, and citizenship.
Be sure to include a copy of the image you have analyzed in your analysis. You simply have to attach or paste a copy of the image.
