Literatures in Spanish

HISP-S331 The Hispanic World I (3 credits)

Prerequisite: S310 or S311 or equivalent

Credit given for only two of the following: S331, S332, S333

This course is both an introduction to the literature of Spanish America and an introduction to ways of reading literary texts. As we read examples of the essay, short story, poetry, drama, and the novel, we will develop skills for analyzing each of these different literary genres. We will use these readings to examine the role of writing in the construction of identities, both collective and personal, and we will look at the way that Latin American writers have defined literature’s relationship to politics and culture.

Readings for the course will include one short novel, Gabriel García Marquéz’s Crónica de una muerte anunciada. We will watch at least one film, and will consider the relationship of the cinematic medium to literature. Other readings will be drawn from the work of Horacio Quiroga, Jorge Luis Borges, Juan Rulfo, Julio Cortázar, Cristina Peri Rossi, Ana Lydia Vega, Rubén Dario, Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, Vicente Huidobro, Pablo Neruda, Nicolás Guillén, and Nancy Morejón, among others.

The final grade will be determined on the basis of participation in class discussion, written assignments, three short papers, a mid-term, and a final exam.

This course will explore the main aspects of love ― altruistic, erotic and divine ― in Spanish literature.

In our close reading of these works we will focus on the historical and cultural circumstances in which they were written; on the social context, the ethical values, and gender issues they reflect; on the literary trends and genres to which they belong, and on other pertinent questions of literary theory and interpretation.

The specific aim of the course is on the one hand to sharpen the literary insight and widen the cultural horizons of the students and on the other to improve their speaking and writing abilities in Spanish. Students will be evaluated on the basis of their participation in class, several written assignments, and two exams.

HISP-S332 The Hispanic World II (3 credits)

Prerequisite: S331 or equivalent

Credit given for only two of the following: S331, S332, S333.

This course provides an introduction to Spanish literature and the analysis of cultural texts. It focuses primarily on something that you probably already take for granted: reading. During the semester, we will aim to strengthen your ability to read both critically and creatively, analyzing the strategies that different authors use to express their ideas, create their literary and filmic worlds, and engage the reader. The course thus stresses analytical thinking. As an introduction to literature, the class will familiarize you as well with the basic tools for the analysis of film and three literary genres: narrative, poetry, and drama. We will question the limits of textual interpretation (is any interpretation of a text valid?) and work towards producing readings that are creative, insightful and grounded.

Course evaluation will be based on a combination of short writing assignments, presentations, exams, and class participation. Class discussions and assignments are in Spanish.

HISP-S471 Spanish American Literature 1 (3 credits)

Prerequisite: S331 and S332 or equivalent

In this course, we will study Spanish American literature from the moment of conquest to the early 20 th century. Looking at the role of writing and literature during the colonial period, the formation of the independent nations, and the process of modernization in the last third of the 19 th century, we’ll pay attention to the interplay between aesthetic, cultural, and ideological concerns. We will read and discuss in class a wide variety of works, including texts on the discovery and conquest from different positions, the protofeminist writings of Catalina de Erauso and Sor Juana, poetry of independence and identity building, the national romances of the 19 th century, slave narratives, gaucho poetry, anti-immigration novels, and the modernist poetry and anti-US imperialism writings of José Martí and Rubén Dario. By exploring the process of how Latin America has been “written” in the past, this course also aims to provide students with a solid background that will help them better understand Latin America in the 20 th century and today.

Class attendance and participation are essential to the success of the course. Assignments will include one in class presentation, short papers, and a final paper. The course will be conducted entirely in Spanish.

HISP-S474 Hispanic Literature & Society (3 credits)

Prerequisite: S331 and S332 or equivalent.

 Topic: Writing (in) the city: contemporary literature and urban space in Latin America and Spain.

From the last decades of the 19 th century to the present, both Latin America and Spain have undergone a dramatic process of urban transformation and growth and many of their cities have gone from sleepy towns to highly populated and sophisticated cosmopolitan capitals. In this course, we will study how the city has shaped literary and cultural production and how, in turn, literature and other cultural texts have imagined, shaped, and reshaped urban spaces during the past two centuries. We will center our discussion on concrete case studies: Buenos Aires, Santiago, México DF, and Madrid. From the great urban narratives of 19 th century realism to current postmodern and fragmented views of the “global city,” works discussed in class may include literary texts by Blest Gana, Cambaceres, Galdós, Valenzuela, Eltit, Fuguet, and Muñoz Molina; films such as El callejón de los milagros, Amores perros, Carne trémula, and El mismo amor, la misma lluvia; and theoretical essays by Rama, De Certeau, García Canclini, and Soja.

Class attendance and participation are essential requirements for this course. Assignments may include one in-class presentation, short papers, and a final paper. The course will be conducted entirely in Spanish.

HISP-S425 Spanish Phonetics (3 credits)

Prerequisite: S310 or equivalent for those students who matriculated prior to Summer 2003. S326 for those students who matriculated Summer 2003 or after.

Textbooks:
D. Lincoln Canfield, “Spanish Pronunciation in the Americas”.
John B. Dalbor, “Spanish Pronunciation: Theory and Practice”.

Topics to be covered:

Goals: Students should derive the following from S425:

1) An understanding of how speech sounds are produced, and the basic vocabulary necessary to talk about these speech sounds.

2) An understanding of the way in which speakers organize their concept of speech sounds.

3) Knowledge of “correct” Spanish pronunciation, and how Spanish orthography relates to pronunciation.

4) Improvement in his or her own pronunciation of Spanish.

5) The ability to recognize differences in various pronunciations of the same word, and to recognize pronunciation errors in his or her own speech and in the speech of others, and to describe the error and its correction.

6) An understanding of the basic concepts of dialects, “standard” vs. “nonstandard” language, some of the most important features of the major dialects of Spanish.

7) Knowledge of the differences between the sounds of English and the sounds of Spanish, and an understanding of the reasons for the difficulties which Americans have with Spanish pronunciation.

Evaluation and expectations:

There will be a comprehensive final exam at the time listed in the schedule of classes, one 50-minute exam and several quizzes, including pop quizzes if necessary. (All assigned material is eligible for quizzing.)

There will also be homework assignments, although the written homework in S425 is not heavy. Students are nonetheless expected to study between class meetings, and no one should think that the material is too hard or the pace too fast if he or she is not studying at least two hours in preparation for each class. Although some people will not need that much preparation time, students should plan for it until they see that they can make A’s with less.

It should not be necessary to add that REGULAR and ATTENTIVE ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION ARE REQUIRED FOR SUCCESS IN THE COURSE. Finally, students are expected to be familiar with and to abide by the University’s policies on academic honesty.

There will be no grade changes except in cases of clerical or computational error. There will be no make-up quizzes or exams. Work missed will lower your average, except that students with valid reasons for missing an exam or quiz should discuss the matter with me.

HISP-S428 Applied Spanish Linguistics (3 credits)

Prerequisite: S310 or equivalent for those students who matriculated prior to Summer 2003. S326 for those students who matriculated Summer 2003 or after.

The field of Applied Linguistics encompasses several areas of research and has as its primary goal the application of linguistic theory to problems of actual language use.  Applied linguists employ the basic theoretical concepts of linguistics in the examination of the language spoken by populations as varied as second language learners and native speakers from a particular region or social group.  Students enrolled in this course will begin by examining the fundamental concepts of second language acquisition and of sociolinguistics. The latter portion of the semester will be dedicated to the direct application of these constructs to issues in Spanish grammar.  This second half of the course will be organized by grammatical construct and will cover many areas of linguistics: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics.  Students will review the basic rules for using each linguistic construct and will then examine research that has applied such linguistic knowledge to the study of language acquisition and the study of language use by native speakers of Spanish. This course will be especially helpful to students interested in teaching Spanish in the future and to those who enjoy examining the varieties of Spanish spoken by populations around the world.

Prerequisite: S275 or equivalent for those students who matriculated prior to Fall 2001. S331 or equivalent for those students who matriculated Fall 2001 or after.

“Representation and Violence in Spanish America”

In this course we will examine various forms of cultural production in the context of institutionalized violence in Spanish America, and will ask how these forms of representation convey or intervene in structures of political repression, economic domination and psychological abjection. Course material will be selected from three geographic and historical contexts: the 1959 Cuban Revolution, the Southern Cone military dictatorships of the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s, and the contemporary drug wars in the Andes and along the Mexican-US border. Cultural texts will include films, music, photographic displays, paintings, short stories, and two short or medium-length novels. We will pay especially close attention to the specificities of genre, asking how it is that film, painting, music, and fiction respond in their own ways to experiences of violence. Evaluation based on class participation, short writing assignments, and a final exam.
