SPAN 126 - (LT) Contemporary Hispanic Thought: The Usable Past

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
The connection between Iberia and Latin America, the complex relationship between their histories, cultures, politics and literary traditions as revealed primarily in fiction and the essay. Concentrating on the past as both the subject of fiction and as a source of inscribing fiction, the course traces the ways in which writers self-consciously participate in the construction of a Latin-American canon. Issues surrounding colonization and independence, mestizaje and melting pot, domination and selfdetermination, and the ambivalence of history in a “new” world is addressed.
