Subject, Modernity, and Nation in Latin America|
Spring 2011 not offered
This course explores how Latin American writers dealt with the ideas of subject formation, modern development, and national identity between 1880 and 1930. Through analyses of narrations and plays, we will examine the relationship between capitalist expansion, social practices, and cultural heritage in several countries of the subcontinent. Special emphasis will be placed on questions of race, the role of women, and the impact of alternative political ideologies as they relate to the concept of progress in Latin America.
