SPAN 6648 Literature of Cultural Migration in the Americas (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

Ever since Columbus, the culture and literature of the Americas has been forged by the conflictive and yet rich mixing of peoples and cultures. In this course we will focus on three regions: the Caribbean, the Andes, and Latinos in the United States, basing our inquiry on major literary texts spanning the colonial to modern periods, as well as sources in music and film, as we seek to grapple with questions of coloniality and modernity, transculturation and assimilation, in an increasingly global world.
