writers and cultural critics to violent political ruptures in 20th-
century Latin America, with a principal focus on four historical
moments: post-revolutionary Mexico, Argentina and Chile following
the “Dirty Wars” of the 1980s, post-revolutionary Cuba, and
contemporary Bolivia and Columbia during the drug wars. Works

film, short prose, poetry and visual art. Course work will include
several short papers, quizzes (in the form of in-class writing on
assigned texts), and a final essay.
