宗旨


这门人文、艺术、社会与科学科目分散课程/ 沟通密集课程(HASS-D/CI)是麻省理工学院大学部拉丁美洲政治和社会入门课程,不需具备当地背景。 全部课程(包括阅读、撰写报告、课堂参与和测验),与其他人文、艺术、社会与科学科目分散课程相似。这里大多数主题会在其他课程详细描述,包括∶ 21F.020 J (新大陆文学), 21F.716(当代拉丁文学导论), 21F.730(二十世纪拉丁美洲文学), 21F.735(拉丁文学和电影进阶主题), 21A.220 (征服美洲), 21H.802(现代拉丁美洲), 3.982(古安地斯世界), 3.983(中美洲古文明), 17.508(政体交替)及 17.554(拉丁美洲政治经济学)。




人文、艺术、社会与科学科目分散课程 / 沟通密集科目规范


因为这是人文、艺术、社会与科学科目分散课程 / 沟通密集科目,所以必须符合以下标准规范。包括三至五次书面报告(本课程三次),每次书面报告至少二十页。这些报告至少有一篇必须修改后再提交。人文、艺术、社会与科学科目沟通密集 科目必须进一步提供学生口头报告的机会,透过上台演讲、学生台下讨论或课堂参与等方式。为了保证充分注意每一名学生的书面和口头报告,人文、艺术、社会与科学科 沟通密集科目要求每班学生人数最多 18 名,除非该科目授课讲师只有一名,无法分班。这种情况下,填选此一科目的学生可增加至 25 名。




课程要求


要求包括每周课程阅读进度和观看录影带;积极参与课堂讨论、上台报告和课堂辩论;三篇短篇报告(其中二篇必须修改后再提交),一次随堂地图测验;以及一次三小时期末考试。




参考读本和录影带


每周阅读 75 到 130 页,或者平均约 100 页。读本包括来自各大出版社书目、文学作品及社会科学学术研究。本课程的主要参考书包括∶

• 随堂笔记

• Winn, Peter .《美洲∶拉丁美洲和加勒比海面貌改变》( Americas: The Changing Face of Latin America and the Caribbean)第二版,加州柏克莱大学出版社, 1995 。

• Spooner, Mary Helen.《狭长国家的军人∶智利皮诺契特政权》(Soldiers in a Narrow Land: The Pinochet Regime in Chile),加州柏克莱大学出版社, 1994 。

Allende, Isabel. 《金色豪门》(The House of the Spirits), 纽约∶ Bantam 书屋,1985。
我强烈推荐你购买所有上述书本,最后二本书的原文是西班牙文,( 如果喜欢,可以自由选购和阅读原文)。不过,你也能在杜威图书馆和海登图书馆的书库内找到全部要求的读物。

如果你的母语不是英语,你仍应该努力以英语去读这些非文学作品。不过,对于文学作品(如 Garcia Marquez 和 Allende )来说,可以自由以西班牙原文阅读。

每周还要观看很多录影带或电影,这是本课程的一部分。美洲(Americas)系列录影带部分由WGBH-Boston 制片,每片一小时。请注意智利战争(The Battle of Chile )电影很长,你应该提前规画时间。




作业要求


本课程第二周结束时会有一个 30 分钟地图测验(较晚选课的学生可以在课外进行地图测验,不扣分)。本测验范围涵盖拉丁美洲全部国家、主要城市和地理区域(如亚马逊河流域、安第斯山脉等)。本学期的课程,你也将写三篇不同题目的报告。缴报告的日期会在以下注明,报告题目必须在课程范围内。最后,学期结束前会有一次正式期末考试,时间三小时,包括全部课程资料。期末考试一半内容是名词解释和简答题,另一半内容是申论题。




课堂参与


我们希望你在整个学期参与课堂讨论。参与包括参考读本和电影的非正式课堂讨论、上台报告,以及正式的课堂辩论。 出席上课显然是课堂参与的必要条件。如果你真的无法上课,应该提前通知我。超过两次无故缺课将严重危及你的课堂参与评分。

此外,如果你未提前预习当天的课堂讨论,无论什么理由,请在开始上课前通知我。我会在课堂上随意“点名”提问,在小班制内无处可躲。再次声明,超过两次无故“未预习”将危及你的课堂参与评分。

我有个怪毛病,在每次非演讲式的课堂下课后记录每位学生课堂参与的分数。如果你的出勤记录是完美的,学期末最低的两次评分会被删除,如果你在这学期仅缺一次课,最低的那一次评分会被删除。

请注意,我们整学期课程将有一次正式的课堂辩论,一次即席课堂抽问,以及一次事前准备的上台报告。




给分标准


课堂参与(包括课堂辩论和抽问)占总分 30% 。三篇报告各占 15% ,地图测验 5% ,期末考试占 20%。

报告迟交,每迟交一天将扣字母三分之一级。如果你需要一次延期,请提前告诉我。提早一周以上申请延期一定会同意;前一天晚上才请求延期一定会被拒绝。




剽窃条款


写报告(或论文)时,你必须注记引述学术的出处和范围,交待你曾参考的书籍作者,你从哪里得到想法 ( 如同学、邀访学者等 ) 。你可以透过附注、参考书目或其他学术性工具方式交待。未明确告知你在研究或想法上引述他人是“剽窃”行为,被认为是最严重的学术过失,并且将被惩处。如果有任何关于应该如何引用文献证明你的想法来源的问题,在提交书面报告之前请先征询指导老师。

报告写作技巧


关于写报告的文体和实质技巧,可参见附在课程范围上的建议。报告格式的指导可在 [url]www.mit.writing.edu[/url] 找到。此外我采用密封姓名评分,因此请记得在报告结尾用一张纸条遮住你的名字。

Syllabus (PDF)





Purpose


This HASS-D/CI course is designed as an introduction to Latin American politics and society for undergraduates at MIT. No background on the region is required. Overall workload (reading, writing, class participation, and examinations) is similar to that of other HASS-D courses. Many of the themes raised here are covered in greater detail in other courses: 21F.020J (New World Literature), 21F.716 (Introduction to Contemporary Hispanic Literature), 21F.730 (Twentieth-Century Hispanic American Literature), 21F.735 (Advanced Topics in Hispanic Literature and Film), 21A.220 (The Conquest of America), 21H.802 (Modern Latin America), 3.982 (The Ancient Andean World), 3.983 (Ancient Mesoamerican Civilization), 17.508 (Regime Change), and 17.554 (Political Economy of Latin America).





Criteria for HASS CI Subjects


Because this is a HASS-D CI subject, it must meet the following mechanical criteria. This includes at least 20 pages of writing divided among 3-5 assignments (in the case of this class, three). Of these assignments, at least one must be revised and resubmitted. HASS CI subjects must further offer students substantial opportunity for oral expression, through presentations, student-led discussion, or class participation. In order to guarantee sufficient attention to student writing and substantial opportunity for oral expression, the maximum number of students per section in a HASS CI subject is 18, except in the case of a subject taught without sections where the faculty member in charge is the only instructor. In that case, enrollments can rise to 25, if a writing fellow is attached to the subject.





Course Requirements


Requirements include weekly course readings and videos; active participation in class discussions, class presentations, and the class debate; three short papers (two of which must be revised and resubmitted); one in-class map test; and one three-hour final exam.





Readings and Videos


Weekly readings range from 75 to 130 pages, or about 100 pages on average. Readings include articles from the popular press, literary works, and scholarly research from the social sciences. Principal texts for the course include:

Course Reader.
Winn, Peter. Americas: The Changing Face of Latin America and the Caribbean. 2nd ed. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1995.
Spooner, Mary Helen. Soldiers in a Narrow Land: The Pinochet Regime in Chile. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1994.
Allende, Isabel. The House of the Spirits. New York: Bantam Books, 1985.
I strongly recommend that you purchase all of the above books, the last two of which were originally written in Spanish. (Feel free to buy and read them in the original, if you prefer.) However, you can also find all required readings on reserve in Dewey Library and Hayden Library.

If your first language is not English, you should still try to read the non-literary works in English. For literary works (such as García Márquez and Allende), however, please feel free to read them in the original Spanish.

Many weekly readings are accompanied by videos or films, which are an integral part of the course. Videos from the Americas series, produced in part by WGBH-Boston, are one hour each. Please note that the film The Battle of Chile is very long, so you should plan in advance appropriately.





Written Requirements


There will be a 30-minute map test at the end of the second week of the course. (Those students joining the course late can make up the map test outside of class with no penalty.) This test will cover all countries in Latin America, as well as major cities and geographical regions (e.g., the Amazon basin, the Andes, etc.). Over the course of the semester, you will also write three papers addressing different topics raised in the course of the semester. Due dates for the papers are noted below, and paper topics are attached to the syllabus. Finally, at the end of the semester during the official exam period, there will be a three-hour exam covering all course materials. Half of this exam will be based on identification and short answer questions; half will be based on an essay.





Class Participation


You are expected to participate in class discussion throughout the semester. Participation includes informal class discussion of the readings and films, in-class presentations, and a formal class debate. Attendance is obviously a prerequisite for class participation. If you must miss a class, you should notify me in advance. More than two unexcused absences will seriously jeopardize your class participation grade.

Also, please notify me at the beginning of the class if, for whatever reason, you are unprepared to participate in class discussion that day. I "cold call" people freely, so in a small class there is nowhere to hide. Again, more than two unexcused "unprepareds" will jeopardize your class participation grade.

My somewhat odd habit is to record class participation grades for each student after each non-lecture class. If your attendance record is perfect, the lowest two of these grades will be dropped at the end of the semester. If you miss only one class over the semester, the lowest of your grades will be dropped.

Please note that we will have one formal class debate, one extemporaneous class presentation, and one planned class presentation over the course of the semester.





Grading


Class participation (including the class debates and presentations) will count for 30% of the grade. The three papers will each count for 15%, the map test for 5%, and the final exam will count for 20%.

Papers that are late will be penalized by one-third of a letter grade for each day late. If you need an extension, please tell me ahead of time. Extensions requested a week or more in advance will be automatically granted; extensions requested the night before are virtually automatically denied.





Plagiarism Clause


When writing a paper (or an essay exam), you must identify the nature and extent of your intellectual indebtedness to the authors whom you have read or to anyone else from whom you have gotten ideas (e.g., classmates, invited lecturers, etc.). You can do so through footnotes, a bibliography, or some other kind of scholarly device. Failure to disclose your reliance on the research or thinking of others is PLAGIARISM, which is considered to be the most serious academic offense and will be treated as such. If you have any questions about how you should document the sources of your ideas, please ask your instructors before you submit your written work.

MIT's academic honesty policy can be found at the following link:

Hints on Writing Papers


For stylistic and substantive advice on writing your papers, see the hints attached to this syllabus. Guidance for formatting can be found at [url]www.mit.writing.edu.[/url] Also, I practice blind grading, so please make sure to put your name on a separate sheet at the end of the paper.





Resources on Writing


Extensive resources are available to you if you want help with writing. These resources include the MIT Writing Center on campus, the writing tutor for the course, the TA for the course, the course website, and me. Please take advantage of these if you have any questions or doubts!
