HISP-S 334 Panoramas of Hispanic Literature (3 credits)
Prerequisite: S328 or equivalent.
This section of S334 offers an introductory overview of the history
of Spanish American literature, focusing in particular on the 19th
and 20th centuries. Students will read, analyze, and discuss a broad
selection of texts by canonical authors representing several genres
(fiction, the essay and other non-fictional prose, and poetry),
paying particular attention to their historical and literary
contexts. We will discuss issues such as nation-building and
identity formation, U.S. imperialism and neocolonialism, and the
nature and function of art. Students will be evaluated on the basis
of class participation, homework assignments, presentations, essays,
and exams. Class will be conducted in Spanish.
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 or S334. Have questions? Call the department
