RLRL 6620 Capstone:Beyond Study Abroad (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

Through the eyes of 20th century literary writers such as John Dos Passos, Ernest Hemingway, Carlos Fuentes and Julia Alvarez, students will explore literature and how external events interact with personal choices to affect relationships and life-commitments, often with serious moral consequences. More specifically, the course will examine how the experience of cultural displacement itself impacts the challenge and process of vocational discernment. While focusing on Spain and Latin America, the course will appeal to any student who has studied abroad. All readings and movies will be in English.
