SPAN 315 Literary Theory and Latin American Literature



Recent decades have seen a veritable explosion in the production of cultural and literary theory in Latin America and the Latinx world.  As each school of thought emerges, it questions inherited views of the world postulated by its predecessors, and remakes textual and social practices in the region. Through discussions of Latin American and Latinx texts and visual-cultural materials, and engagement with new cultural practices such as Cartonera publishing, this course examines multiple ways critics, writers, and artists imagine the region and propose novel ways to address ongoing cultural and intellectual challenges.

Prerequisite: Spanish 301,302 or permission of instructor.
