HISP-S 324 Introduction to the Study of Hispanic Cultures (3 credits)
Prerequisite: S280 or S310 or equivalent.
This course critically examines a variety of Hispanic cultural
contexts, with special attention devoted to the Hispanic Caribbean,
Spain, Argentina, Mexico and the Andean nations. The study sequence
follows three primary topical units: Race & Mestizaje, Gender &
Sexuality and Memory & Post-Dictatorship. Focusing on a variety of
texts (visual, literary, documentary, historiographical) from
different historical periods (1600ís to the present), the course
explores the historical and cultural traits which are unique to the
regions studied as well as the many elements they share in common.
