SPAN 4201 - Survey of Spanish-Amer Lit & Culture I

3 hours
Prerequisites: SPAN 3400  with a grade of “C-” or better.
This course provides a survey of Spanish American literature during the Colonial period, from 1492 through the first half of the 19th century. We shall read and analyze representative works in all literary genres, from various Latin American countries, in a cultural-historical context. We will also read from chronicles, autobiographies, and travel accounts, as well as poetry and narratives of indigenous peoples. We will complement our reading with the screening of selected films set in the colonial period or during the national independence movements in Central and South America. Special emphasis will be given to the development of critical skills for literary and cultural analysis through oral reports and written assignments on the material studied in the course.
