SPAN 6638 Building the Modern Latin American Metropolis (Spring: 3 )
This course will explore the development of the modern Latin American city through poetry, fiction, and film. We will discuss the cultural and political implications of its evolution, from patterns of space distribution to inner city violence and ecological crisis, looking closely at social issues and their representations. We will discuss works by Allison Anders, Roberto Arlt, Washington Cucurto, Gonzlez Tun, Fernando Vallejo, and Luis Zapata, among others.
