Contemporary Latin American Fiction: Writing After the Boom
SPAN 289
Spring 2015 not offered
Crosslisting: LAST 287

One of the characteristics of recent Latin American fiction is the interest in more open, relaxed forms of narration that focus on individual lives against the backdrop of specific social issues. In this course we examine this new experimentation with novelistic form as we look at several matters, including social and political violence, gay and heterosexual subjectivity, literary tradition, as well as artistic production. Several films will also be discussed.
