The Mexican Revolution (1910-1920) produced ten years of civil war, a million victims, and the founding moment in the modernization and nationalization of Mexico. A series of conflicts ranging from peasant struggles for the land through to the petty rivalries, fears and factionalism of its different regional leaders, in its aftermath the post-Revolutionary state utilized the conflict to create a modern pantheon of heroes while forging the ideas, images and imaginary capable of establishing a "true" national psyche — a supposedly authentic and modern Mexican national culture.

This class will examine the legacies and problematic fantasies of the Revolution as manifested in art, photography, literature, history, philosophy and film.

This course counts as literature credit for the Spanish minor.
