The Public Intellectual in Mexico|
Fall 2016 not offered
Mexican writers, intellectuals, and artists have long been recognized for the brilliance with which they have used their work to comment on and shape the direction of the Mexican state. In this course, we will examine the writings of several major figures with the goal of understanding how they see and imagine Mexico. At the same time, we will consider how the concept of the public intellectual has changed over the past decades. Students will analyze novels, essays, poetry, and film.
