RLSP 308
Survey of Colonial Latin American Literature from 1492 to the Early 19th Century Spring 2021
Division I Writing Skills Difference, Power, and Equity

Class Details

This course will focus on major works of Spanish American literature from 1492 through the first part of the 19th century. Readings will include narrative texts such as Cartas de relaciĆ³n, chronicles of conquest, religious texts, and indigenous annals, as well as poetry and drama. While many of the texts will focus on colonial Mexico, we will also study texts from Central and South America. We will focus on the historical contexts and formal aspects of these works, and study methods of textual analysis that are particularly relevant to these texts via selected critical readings. Special attention will be given to colonial encounters and the clash of cultures that produced new identities and textualities under Spanish colonial rule. The course meets twice per week and it is taught remotely. Conducted in Spanish.
