Primary Instructor:

This senior seminar is concerned with the narratives associated with neo-baroque, post-boom, and post-modern novels, which main topic is the sexual proliferation of identities and the problematization of heteronormative and binary sexuation processes and theories, official in Latin American discourses. Through the reading of crucial literary authors (such as Severo Sarduy, Pedro Lemebel, Rita Indiana, Osvaldo Lamborghini, among many others), and some essayists (such as Nelly Richards, Carlos Monsiváis, Néstor Perlongher, and others), we will problematize the canonical heterosexual and Catholic representation of Latin American culture from the point of view of these queer interventions.

This course counts as literature credit toward the Spanish minor.
