Cultures in Conflict: Latin American Novels of the 20th and 21st Centuries
SPAN 288
Fall 2013
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: LAST 288

In this course we will examine several important novels that deal with social and cultural dislocation in the context of revolution, civil war, and globalization. In addition to the crucial issue of innovation in literary form, we will ask ourselves how the novel represents local and national culture, as well as how it portrays the interconnection of power, gender and desire, cultures in conflict, marginalization, and violence. Works of essayists, historians, and theorists, as well as films, will assist us in defining context.
