Jorge Luis Borges
SPAN 275
Fall 2013 not offered
Crosslisting: LAST 284

Jorge Luis Borges is one of the most well-known writers of the 20th century. His short stories and essays have exerted a significant influence on philosophers, historians, filmmakers, and fiction writers across the globe. In this course, we will examine Borges' literary work, as well as the production of a wide array of cultural critics who have appropriated and discussed his ideas to develop their own intellectual projects. We will pay special attention to the ways in which Borges' conception of literature has played a special role in developing new notions of authorship, fiction, history, and modernity.
