HISP-S 328: Intro to Hispanic Literature
Professor Ryan Giles*
Section 6853 TuTh 2:30pm-3:45pm GA 0011


This course provides students with an introduction to the study of Hispanic literatures. Through in-class discussions and written work, students will acquire conceptual tools in Spanish and learn to develop grounded interpretations of texts by analyzing their content (story, ideas, themes), the ways through which content is structured and expressed by the way texts are written, and the relationship between a text and its historical, cultural, social, and/or political context.

The course's approach stems from the proposition that by better understanding the way texts creates meaning and engage with the ideas, changes, and preoccupations of their time, we will also be able to become better, more sophisticated readers in Spanish (and beyond). The analytical tools that students learn in this course will also prepare them for more advanced classes in literature and culture.

*Note: This course carries CASE A&H and CASE GCC distribution credit.
*Note: This class open to Hutton Honors students only.
