Units: 4

Prerequisites: Spanish 25

This course offers an introduction to modern Spanish American literatures and cultures. It focuses on the complex ways in which cultural and intellectual production anticipates, participates in, and responds to political, social, and economic transformations from the nineteenth century onwards. Through a wide spectrum of sources (essays, fiction, poetry, film, and art), we will study and discuss some of the most relevant issues in Latin American modern history, such as modernity, democracy, identity, memory, and social and economic justice.
