Exile and Immigration in Latino and Hispanic Literatures
SPAN 285
Spring 2008
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: LAST 241

During the past two centuries, Latin American writers and intellectuals have produced important works while living outside their countries of birth, whether in Latin America, Europe, or in the United States. Recently, particularly in the United States, a good deal of writing has been produced by Hispanic subjects both from the temporary position of exile and from the more stable position of belonging. This course will examine these issues, paying special attention to the ways in which exile, immigration, and shifting national borders have informed, both as reality and discourse, Spanish-American and Latino writings.
