Primary Instructor:

This senior seminar would be focused on the impact historical fascism and ne-fascism movements have had on Latin America. From extreme right-wing ideologies of racial pureness, nationalism, racism, and anti-liberal corporativism to the recent rise of religious fundamentalist movements and their rejection of modernity and globalization. Through historical and textual analyses, literary texts, movies and current political discourses, we will understand the nuances and dimensions of neo-fascism and its difference with its historical first manifestation. The class will also interrogate nationalism movements and their complicated relationship with anti-imperialist politics.

This course counts as literature credit for the Spanish minor.
