SPAN 360 - Twentieth and Twenty-First Century Mexican Literature and Popular Cultures

This course studies the Mexican literature and popular cultures in the 20th and 21st centuries and offers the student a better understanding of the actual and crucial role that Hispanic American literature plays as a subject of study in the learning of Spanish. The course begins with the Mexican Revolution in literature, popular culture, and art, then moves forward to post-revolutionary and avant garde narrative, art, and poetry, and it continues with the student protest during the second half of the 20th century. The course will end with a study of contemporary writers and the US/Mexico border literature and culture current scene, and will reveal how their works represent Mexican popular cultures, social movements like Neozapatism and compromised literature at the end of the twentieth and beginning of the 21st. This is a digital liberal arts project oriented course and requires teamwork participation. Prerequisite: Any three of SPAN 226, 250, 310, or 350 or permission of instructor. (Group III) Diversity.
