The main purpose of this graduate seminar is to produce a common understanding about the diversity and complexity of theoretical and socio-political debates(Post-colonialism, Subalternism, Neo-Communism, Post-Hegemony and Infrapolitics) that have informed Hispanic Studies since the fall of Communism and the crisis of traditional paradigms (Marxism, Literary Studies, Nation-Formation, etc.). Through the reading of the principal interventions associated with contemporary intellectual production in our field, we will configure and evaluate the "state of the art" of Hispanic Studies in this current, neoliberal, world.
