SPAN 123 - (LT) Politics of the Hispanic World

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
The course focuses on the implantation of the Spanish political, religious and cultural institutions in the Latin-American Colonies and the later transition to national entities (caciquismo, machismo, Catholicism, military dictatorship, etc.) and their literary projections. It explores locations and representations of power and resistance (the state, the church, the convent, the plantation), along with the possibility of resistance to an authority always already in place, the dual role of the body as material and theoretical protagonist in that resistance, and the problematic status of woman in an inherited male culture.
