SPAN 270 - The Contemporary Latin American Press: Journalistic Writing & Analysis


FDR: HU
Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring 2013 and alternate years

Prerequisites: Three credits from any 200-level Spanish course or instructor consent. The public space in Latin America is a complex site where ideological negotiations and social changes constantly take place. Researchers and journalists have compared the archives of the press produced by different countries to grasp the most recent dynamics in the region. Thanks to the simultaneity and globalization provided by the Internet, people can capture the pulse of the planet from home and in real time. This phenomenon can be described as the institutionalization of the global village. This course aims to take advantage of the epistemologies of global communication created by new technologies in order to feel the pulse of Latin America as portrayed by the local press. This is an advanced course in composition in which students improve their writing skills and acquire tools to understand contemporary Latin American politics, economy. and society. González.
