SPAN 347 - Poetry and Power


FDR: HL
Planned Offering: Fall 2017 and when departmental resources permit
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.
