HISP-S 328 Introduction to Hispanic Literature (3 credits)
Prerequisite: S280 or S310 or equivalent.
This course is an introduction to the critical reading of the
literature and film of Spain and Spanish America. Not only will the
course familiarize students with some important literary texts, but
it will also help them learn the critical vocabulary needed to
analyze and communicate ideas effectively about these. We will read
representative works of the following three genres: prose fiction,
theater and poetry, as well as view and analyze two films. The
course will include substantial written homework, as well as longer,
structured papers. The writing assignments for the course are
intended to help students improve their Spanish while promoting
discussion of the texts studied in class.
Writing assignments: 35%
Final Exam: 25%
Class Participation: 15%
This course carries the culture studies and arts and humanities
