SPAN 364 - The Latin American Novel Within Its Revolutions, Cultures and Social Changes


In this class, we’ll study the main narrative works of Hispanic America from the end of the 19th century to the establishment of the “post-boom” at the end of the 20th century, and well into the 21st century. We will cover the main literary movements such as indigenismo, criollismo, regionalismo, vanguardia y pos-vanguardia. We read novels from authors such as Mariano Azuela, Carlos Fuentes, Julio Cortázar, Gabriel García Márquez, and Isabel Allende, among others. The extensive use of cultural materials including art, films, pictures and music will aid in the comprehension of the readings. This is a digital liberal arts project oriented course and requires teamwork participation. Prerequisite: SPAN 350  or permission of instructor. Group III Diversity
