Description

In this course, we are going to read a series of texts from Latin America and we are going to make the dialogue with texts produced in other regions of the world where colonization took place at different historical moments. The readings will include short stories, poems, articles, chapters, and movies by authors such as Christopher Columbus, Fray Bartolomé de las Casas, Edward Said, Jorge Luis Borges, Frantz Fanon, Nicolás Guillén, Chinua Achebe, Luis Puenzo, Gillo Pontecorvo, Naomi Klein, and others. All of them offer opportunities to analyze how colonial structures impinge on social and cultural aspects of the societies that underwent processes of colonization.

This course counts toward the literature requirement for the Spanish minor.
