HISP-S 328  Introduction to Hispanic Literature  (3 credits)
Prerequisite:  S280 or S310 or equivalent

The objective of this course is to provide you with a thorough
introduction to Hispanic literature and to the concepts of literary
analysis. We will learn about the different genres in literature and
culture and read a variety of texts, including poetry, short
stories, an essay, a play, a short novel, and view 1 film. At the
same time the course also aims to familiarize you with the diverse
cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. Hence we read a rich
selection of Spanish and Spanish-American writers from across
centuries. This class is an excellent preparation for upper-level
literature and culture courses; we focus on reading texts closely,
asking critical and informed questions of them, and considering
their cultural, political, and historical contexts.

This course carries CASE A&H and CASE GCC distribution credit.

Note:  For students who matriculated fall 2009 or before, credit
given for only two of these:  S328, S331, S332, or S333.  If you

then DO NOT take S328.  Have questions?  Call the department at
