Course Catalog Description:
Span 3512, conducted entirely in Spanish, will consider some of the relations between daily life and symbolic production in modern Latin America. We will begin by exploring the emergence of ways of naming and mapping the hemisphere: where/what is Latin America? What is the history of cultures and the movement of peoples that have given rise to what we imagine as Latin America today? What do we mean by such names as America, Hispanic, Latino, etc.? What is the relation between Latin America and Latino? What are different ways to explore cultural manifestations and products? Using film, documentaries, production of soap operas, the web, and other resources, we will go on to examine a series of topics from a historical perspective, including education, modernity, modernization, and identity formation.
