Primary Instructor:

The goal of this course is to provide students with a level of knowledge that enables them to succeed in future Hispanic literature courses. With that in mind, the course provides an introduction to the creativity of the Spanish speaking world through the study of literary genres and the analysis of films. In class we will work with a selection of short stories and novels, essays, films, plays and poetry. By studying this group of texts, students will learn to identify major characteristics of each genre, to use appropriate terminology to describe literary and cinematographic technique and to describe and analyze the relevance, effect and/or purpose for said techniques. Perhaps most importantly, from the course materials students will also learn about major themes, ideas, issues and concerns that permeate the literature and films of the Spanish speaking world.

This course counts as a literature course for the Spanish minor.
