HISP-S 328 Introduction to Hispanic Literature (3 credits)
Prerequisite: S280 or S310 or equivalent.
This course will help students develop tools needed for more
advanced study of Hispanic literatures through the reading and
analysis of selected literary texts from Spain and Spanish America.
One of the key aspects that you should take away from the course is
an appreciation of different genres as well as a reflection on the
concept of genre itself. In this section of the course, the
following three genres will be covered: narrative fiction, poetry
and theater. The course will also highlight the importance of socio-
historical context to literary works by presenting texts from
different historical periods. In the study of the selected texts,
the course will introduce you to basic terms of narratological,
poetic, dramaturgical and rhetorical terms used in the study of
literature, which are the bases of “close reading”. This course
carries the culture studies and arts and humanities distribution.
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
have already taken two of these three courses, S331, S332, S333,
then DO NOT take S328. Have questions? Call the department at
