Primary Instructor:

This course will analyze the relationship between literature and history in Latin America. We will read four examples of how literary fiction elaborates a counter-narrative to the official version of history, opening the debates related to memory, justice, human rights, and power. Contrary to the conventional opposition of literature as fiction to historiography as science, this course will consider literature’s ability to produces historical fictions that are complex and appealing to the public.

This course counts as literature credit for the Spanish minor.
