SPAN 9973 The Latin American 60's (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

From essays and fiction to protest songs and underground films, this course explores the dramatic political, and cultural changes triggered by the revolutionary movements of the sixties in Latin America. Special attention will be paid to the relation between politics and literature, women's role in society and the emergence of new genres like the testimonial novel and Latin America's cinema verite in light of today's renewed concern for the relation between art and politics. We will analyze, among others, works by Ariel Dorfman, Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Nicolasito Guillén Landrin, Elena Poniatowska and Pino Solanas.
