SPAN 328 The Black Experience in the Spanish Speaking World


Through a conscientious review of the literary and cultural productions of Afro-descendant writers in the Spanish-speaking world, this course provides students with the fundamental knowledge and principles required to recognize and appreciate manifestations of Black expression in the context of resistance and agency. Students are presented a historical and cultural framework with which to critically analyze, interpret, and engage enduring questions and ideas concerning the racialized lived experiences of Black individuals in the literature, cinema, and popular culture produced by Spanish speakers of African descent in Latin America, Equatorial Guinea, Spain, and the United States.
