Course Description

Prerequisite:  S280 or Consent of the Department

This course invites students to explore Hispanic literatures, and provides them with the critical tools needed for its analysis and interpretation. Through close readings of literary works from Spain and Spanish America, this class will center intersectional identity. Through readings in three genres, we will engage with the varied ways that texts both interact intentionally with their literary movements and socio-historical contexts and reflect the dreams, hopes, anxieties, and prejudices of the societies that produce them. Through class discussions and written work, students will interpret texts by analyzing their content, themes, and writing style, and by examining the ways that form and content cocreate meaning. Through this work, they will become familiar with the tools, terms, and methods of literary criticism. Course conducted in Spanish; students will be evaluated via class participation, homework, essays, and written assessment.

This course carries CASE A&H and CASE GCC2 distribution credit.
