SPAN 347 - Poetry and Power


FDR: HL
Credits: 3

Prerequisites: SPAN 240 and 275. This is a course about reading. We read Spanish-American poetry on power and violence as a way of engaging and investigating the multifaceted and layered historiographies of the region. To intensify our reading, we also "read" a diversity of complementary cultural production, including paintings, murals, and music. Through these self-conscious acts of reading--that is, acts of identifying, evaluating, and critiquing form as much as content--we enhance our ability to analyze and debate ways of defining power in the Americas from within, without, and in liminal zones. Recurring motifs include sexism, racism, classism, and fascism. Michelson.
