This class is a study of Latin American movies, short novels, short stories, and poetry, focusing on gender, race and state violence. The focus will be on the cinematographic texts, but the short novels and short stories will allow us to better understand state violence and/or terrorism and its relationship with gender and race discrimination. We will analyze the films in relation to questions of history, gender, race, social and political issues and national subjectivities. Through filmic, cultural and theoretical readings on film and culture, the class will examine the role of film and literature in history and society.

This course counts as elective credit toward the Spanish minor.
