Primary Instructor:

Borders limit, define, enclose, exclude, and consequently form zones of conflict. This course examines contested borders in 20th century Latin America through literature and cinema. The Chaco War (Bolivia-Paraguay, 1932-35), Soccer or Hundred Hours’ War (El Salvador-Honduras, 1969), and Falklands/Malvinas War (Argentina-United Kingdom, 1982) appear in fiction, poetry, and film, even decades after the end of each conflict. These texts will inform our exploration of borders, violence, and political and literary representation. Throughout the semester, we will work to examine, understand, and challenge traditional modes of conceiving borders and war in literary and cinematic texts with the goal of understanding both the inheritance of the past and the function of contemporary borders and bordering.

This course counts as literature credit for the Spanish minor.

Class Format:

This course will be taught in Spanish.
