Contemporary Latin American Fiction: Writing After the Boom
SPAN 289
Spring 2019 not offered

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, and artistic production. Several films will also be discussed.
