SPAN 343 - Spanish-American Colonial Literature


FDR: HL
Credits: 3

Prerequisites: SPAN 240 and SPAN 275. This course examines the Latin American Colonial period by reading the most important Spanish, Creole, and indigenous texts of the period, and by reflecting on the violent cultural dynamics that created the problematic notion of continental "America." The questions this course examines are related to how identity discourses are produced in Colonial America, and who are the main agents involved in this process. By analyzing the different sides of the Latin American colonial experience, the student will be able to critically approach many "given" paradigms that inform our understanding of the Americas and of the world.
