    Credits: (3).

    Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

    While introducing students to the literary production of the Spanish-speaking world, this course examines the questions: What is literature? And what is literature for? What possibilities does it offer for exploring the questions that perplex us, be they psychological, social, political, or philosophical questions? The texts we will read including narrative, drama, poetry, and film are drawn from various countries in the Spanish-speaking world. Each of these texts responds specifically to its cultural and historical context while also eliciting responses from its readers, who may read from quite different cultural and historical standpoints. How do these texts expand our understanding of other cultures as well as our own? How do they enable us to rethink the world we inhabit by imagining other worlds? Students will examine these questions while also learning basic techniques of literary analysis and further developing their speaking, reading, and writing skills in Spanish. The course is designed to meet the needs of those who are learning Spanish as a second language, as well as native speakers who are interested in a basic introduction to Hispanic Literatures.

    Active oral participation (through discussions and group presentations) is an important component of the course. Written assignments will include interpretive-analytic essays on each genre (narrative, drama, poetry, film). Testing will consist either of a series of short quizzes or two exams (to be decided by each instructor). Class will be conducted in Spanish.

    What is poetry for? What work does it perform in human societies? Throughout history, diverse cultures have produced poetry, but in the modern era poetic practice writing, listening, reading has become increasingly marginalized. What possibilities are gained and lost by giving poetry this special, marginal status? If poetry stands apart as a "dense zone of language use," as a site for expressing intense experience, does it still have the power to intervene in everyday life, changing our perceptions, beliefs, and thoughts? In this course we will address these questions, while exploring the poetic practice of five Latin-American and Spanish poets: Pablo Neruda, César Vallejo, Pedro Salinas, Federico García Lorca, and Alejandra Pizarnik. Students will also engage in poetic practice broadly defined by joining in a dialogue with these poets and choosing from a menu of possible oral and written responses to their poetry. For example, possible oral responses include giving dramatic readings (individually or in groups), power-point presentations, and staging mock interviews with poets. Written responses include critical interpretations, translations (Spanish to English or English to Spanish), photo-essays, and original poems. As a final project we will hold a "poetry slam" in which students impersonate poets of their choice and read from their work. Evaluation is based on written work and oral participation. The midterm and final exam are based on poems discussed in class.

    Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

    The past is gone, right? Different from us, lost, who cares?. Yet it was full of people who thought it was the present, who breathed their days away. This class is about learning to listen for that breath, and about being open to what happens once we've heard it. This class wants us to think about and with the past: to talk with it, to see it as different from us, and to let that difference change the way we think, and think about ourselves. And the way we think about ourselves will be our path to and through the past. We'll ask, What is the "self"? What is its relation to concepts of "inside" and "outside"? What is its relation to collectives, or to what we now call "identities", like "class," "gender," "nationality," "race," "religion," and "sexuality"? What is its relation to the non-human (animals, the demonic, the divine)?

    The particular past that this class lives with is that of the Castilian-speaking Iberian peninsula, from around 1207 to 1650. Readings include Poema de mío Cid, La Celestina, Fuenteovejuna, Lazarillo de Tormes, and the Vida de la monja alférez, plus short stories by Cervantes and María de Zayas, inquisition records, some autobiographies, and lyric poetry.

    All literary texts refer, to a greater or lesser extent, explicitly or implicitly, to other texts; metaliterary texts do this more overtly and self-consciously than others. They emphasize (and often inquire into) their own literariness, in a variety of different ways. Metatheatrical texts can depict a playwright composing a play, a director producing a play, the "real" lives and "stage" lives of actors and actresses, the experiences of audience members, or a combination of these features. Perhaps the most characteristic manifestation is of the "play-within-the-play." This course will focus on examples of metatheater drawn from all periods of Peninsular Spanish literature, and will be further illustrated by reference to texts from other literatures and to films. Teaching, conducted in Spanish, will be by lecture and class discussion. Active participation is expected. Evaluation will be by attendance and three medium-length papers.

    "The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there." So says an English novelist in 1953. If the early 20th century feels like a foreign country, what to say about the Middle Ages? What to say about the Middle Ages in Spain? This class will think about travel and time, about time travel too, and about the confrontation with the "not-me" that any travel, historical, imaginative, or spatial entails. We'll read things written in the Iberian peninsula from the 10th through the 14th centuries: an epic about border-making and border-crossing (the Poema de Cid), a wild story of a wandering, skirt-chasing priest (the Libro de buen amor); we may even watch some time-travel movies. We'll read first-person stories of journeys made by real medieval people (Benjamin of Tudela; a woman named Egeria), and study the greatest of all travel routes in the period, the pilgrimage road to Santiago de Compostela, at the very Western edge of what for Europeans was the world.

    Will we come back the same people from a trip to the end of the world?

    National consolidation and romantic novels go hand in hand in Latin America. We will begin this course discussing the notions of ideology, national culture, and social formation. We will then go on to compare three novels of the period: the Uruguayan José Marmol's Amalia (1851), the Colombian Jorge Issac's María (1867), and the Mexican Ignacio Altamirano's El Zarco (1888). Through the study of these three romantic novels we will explore the relationship between fiction, the formation of national states, and the organization of nineteenth-century free trade.

    Students taking this course should be interested in Latin American politics. Course requirements will include three partial exams (60%) and a final take-home (40%).

    This course proposes the study of some paradigmatic colonial texts of North and Latin America in order to compare the different ways in which the Spanish and British empires undertook conquest and colonization. It also purports to show students how colonial history has been retold, throughout the years, by fictional discourses such as novels and films as well as by non-fictional genres.

    We will begin with Columbus' Diary, the first text to describe American lands. Many a trait found in later texts has its origin in this foundational account. We will also watch a couple of films that retell the story of the "discovery."

    Cabeza de Vaca's pilgrimage, on the other hand, is the model for what Beatriz Pastor calls the narrative of defeat, where nature and not natives becomes the main and unbeatable enemy. We will watch the movie by Mexican filmmaker Echevarría and compare it to the colonial text.

    Lope de Aguirre's letter to the king announcing his rebellion will be compared to two films (Aguirre, by Herzog, and El Dorado, by Saura) inspired by his adventures. From John Smith's documents we get an idea about the British methods and project of colonization of America. The film Pocahontas will help us see how Disney portrays, in a sanitized way, the complex story behind this American myth.

    Walter Raleigh's account is yet another text that documents defeat at the same time it gives a portrait of imperial greed.

    Shakespeare's The Tempest, Rodo's Ariel and Fernández Retamar's Caliban will help us see the way in which the characters created by the former have served both as symbols of the drama of colonization and as interpretive tools for the explanation of the predicaments of modern Latin America.

    A course pack with articles and three other films (The Mission, How Tasty Was My Little Frenchman and Prospero's Books) complete the materials to be read and viewed in this course.

    The armed conflict in Chiapas, Mexico, did not truly begin on Jan.1, 1994, the date often repeated in the media, but may be said to have commenced with the conquest of the region by the Spanish five centuries ago. Without traveling back that far, however, even by staying within the twentieth century, it is possible to gain a certain historical perspective on the contemporary conflict and a greater understanding of the cultures and history of Mexico.

    In this course, we will look at the works of a feminist writer from the mid-twentieth century, Rosario Castellanos, who wrote about the difficult and complex relations between Spanish speakers and those who spoke indigenist languages in the remote region of Chiapas. Her fictions, poetry, essays and theater are largely studied today for her feminist contributions, a facet we shall also examine. But our main texts are those of the Mexican's works that brought her international attention as a Neo-indigenist writer, that is, a non-Indian who promoted social change and social justice for oppressed native peoples in literature.

    Ancillary to the study of Castellanos' writings, we will also examine a few journalistic accounts, essays, and testimonios by Mexicans such as Carlos Fuentes, Guiomar Rovira, and others. If possible, other narratives of the region will be compared to Castellanos and the other writings.

    The class will be largely lecture at first, quickly moving into a discussion format. Each student will give three very brief oral reports, one each on:

    1. a specific facet of the region (geography, demography, etc.);
    2. an Internet news item published in Spanish about the area;
    3. a short story, essay or chapter that the class is reading.

    The student should make every effort to coordinate these reports so that they provide the student useful information for the research paper on one of the literary works. The grade will be calculated according to the following percentages: 3 oral reports, 10% each = 30%; midterm and final 20% each = 40%; and research paper of 10-15pp., 20%; participation, 10%.

    Readings: By Rosario Castellanos: Oficio de tinieblas, novela; Ciudad real, cuentos; Balún-Canán, novela corta. By Guiomar Rovira: Mujeres de maíz, periodismo. By Carlos Fuentes, from Nuevo Tiempo Mexicano y otros ensayos.

    This course will study three "indigenista" novels and one of the essays of the period. The basic premise of the course is that "indigenista" narrative was written with socio-political aims and anthropological interests. Beginning with the Bolivian novel Raza de bronce, written in 1919 by Alcides Arguedas, the course will focus on the development of "indigenismo," from Huasipungo, by the Ecuatorian Jorge Icaza, to El mundo es ancho y ajeno, by the Peruvian Ciro Alegria. The course will also discuss Jose Carlos Mariategui's Siete ensayos de interpretacion de la realidad peruana, the influential essay written in the 1920s.

    Students taking this course are expected to be interested in the politics and economics of twentieth-century Latin America. The grade will depend on three short essays (60%) and a final take-home (40%).

    The French philosopher and historian Michel Foucault wrote that sexuality was the obsession of the twentieth century. Eroticism, through not as inclusive a term as sexuality, certainly has seen a great and varied production in Latin America during this time. We will explore themes of gender and ideology in the poems of a series of major figures from a variety of countries and in different styles.

    Some of the questions to be asked in this term are: how do we read and discuss erotic themes in a classroom? How are erotic themes treated in these poems? How is gender expressed? What does the eroticism mean? What is the cultural value of erotic themes? What does international fame mean when we are discussing the erotic poems by some of the most popular writers, such as Pablo Neruda? What does the variety of mainstream and radical desires say about the poets, their cultures and their genders? To what extent has postmodernism's intermingling of high and low cultures, of intimate and public themes, of international media and local/personal expression changed erotic poetry? Are there differences between erotic poetry and sexual prose that we can ascertain?

    The two writers on which we will concentrate, Delmira Agustini from the beginning of the twentieth century, and Pablo Neruda from the middle of it, are two classic poets of the erotic genre. In addition, we will examine the poems in an anthology of women writers, and through xeroxes or a copypack, more recent work by men and women.

    The class will begin with an introduction to formal aspects of reading poetry, then move into discussions of specific poems based on student reports. Students will give a brief oral report on one poem each by Agustini or Neruda, and one on a more recent poet. There will be two required papers, one on either Agustini or Neruda, and one on any other poet covered in the class. These papers should be around 8-10 pp. and ideally will be coordinated with or come from the oral reports. Three partial exams during the term will also be required. Grading scale: two oral reports: 5% each, 10%; 2 partial exams, 20% each, 40%; 2 papers, 20 each, 40%, participation, 10%. Students will also be asked to sign that they know that the course might contain explicit sexual material and are willing to read such assignments, and to discuss and write about them. It will be difficult to offer substitute readings or assignments due to the nature of the class topic.

    Readings: 1) El placer de la palabra, literatura erótica femenina de América Latina, Antología crítica. Ed. Margarite Fernández Olmos y Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert. 2) Pablo Neruda, Los versos del capitán; 3) Delmira Agustini, Poesías completas; 4) copypack.

    Of the several legendary or archetypal figures bequeathed to us by Spanish literature among them the Cid, La Celestina, Don Quijote and Sancho Panza Don Juan holds a position of prominence. In this upper-level course we will investigate the emergence and development of this figure by reading key Spanish texts in which he is the protagonist. Adopting a broadly historical approach, we will start with Tirso de Molina's El burlador de Sevilla (seventeenth century), in which Don Juan appears for the first time. Next, we will read José Zorrilla's Don Juan Tenorio and José de Espronceda's El estudiante de Salamanca (nineteenth century), while in the latter half of the academic term we will move on to more modern texts, plays, short stories and novels, by Jacinto Grau and Ramón del Valle-Inclán, among others, which offer a diverse range of treatments of this enduring figure.

    Attention will be paid both to the constants and variables in Don Juan's character and behaviour, and individual authors' treatments of the figure and his actions will be studied in the light of the historical circumstances in which they lived and wrote, showing how different ages essentially produced different Don Juans.

    Teaching is by a mixture of lecture, class discussion, and some informal oral presentations. Evaluation is by attendance, class participation, and several medium-length papers. The class will be conducted exclusively in Spanish. Regular attendance and active participation are essential to the successful completion of the course.

    This course will examine different conceptualizations of the relationship between language, selfhood, and community by analyzing various discourses on Hispanic/Latin/American cultural identity. We will explore the ways in which theories and narratives of cultural identity take for granted particular notions of language, selfhood, and community that are far from indisputable or given. By the end of the course, students should emerge with a critical understanding of a wide range of Hispanic/Latin/American conceptions of cultural identity, and a broad sense of the different notions of language, selfhood, and community that Hispanic/Latin/American theorists and poets have proposed.

    In this course we will acquaint ourselves with various twentieth-century discourses and critiques of the notion of cultural identity in general, as well as discussions on Hispanic/Latin/American cultural identity in particular. Specifically, we will review theoretical discourses on "el espíritu americano" (Rodó), "la americanía" (Henríquez Ureña), "la expresión americana (Lezama), "la conciencia americana" (Zea), and "Pan-American consciousness" (Saldívar). We will also examine various novels and poems that dialogue with, challenge, subvert, or re-create particular conceptions of "lo hispano/latino/americano." The tentative list includes Neruda's Canto general, del Cabral's Dos cantos continentales y unos temas eternos, Arguedas' Ríos profundos, Méndez's Peregrinos de Aztlán, Cortázar's Libro de Manuel, Hinostroza's Contra Natura, Braschi's El imperio de los sueños, and Bueno's Mar paraguayo. In conjunction with these readings, we will discuss articles by a variety of contemporary scholars that address questions of cultural identity from the vantage points of gender, class, race, sexuality, postmodernism, postcolonialism, and latinamericanism (e.g., Albó, Benhabib, Butler, Calderón, Castro-Gómez, Cornejo Polar, Echeverría, García Canclini, Gilroy, Hall, Hopenhayn, Quijano, Mignolo, Moreiras, Pratt, Richard, Sandoval, and Spivak).

    This course is reading intensive. Students are expected to participate actively and consistently in class discussions. Course assignments include an oral presentation (5-8 minutes), six response papers (about 2 pages each), and two position papers (10-15 pages).

  • The course will be conducted in Spanish.
