SPAN 65.06 Crossing the US-Mexico Border: Myths and Icons of Hybridity

The US-Mexico border is both a vital zone of contact and a death zone between two of the most diverse and vibrant cultures in the Americas. We will study how border writers, artists, and filmmakers from both sides of the border represent that in-between space that some argue is fast becoming a third nation. Readings and films will include Eduardo Parra, Tierra de nadie, Crosthwaite, La luna siempre será un difícil amor, Campbell’s Tijuana, Rosina Conde’s internet novel La genara, and María Novaro’s films El jardín de Edén and Sin dejar huella, among others. Readings will be in Spanish and English.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:INT or LIT; WCult:CI

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
