New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2019


SPAN 35.01 Argentina On(the)line

This *online only* offering of Spanish 35 surveys moments of crisis in Argentine history (19th-21st centuries) when socioeconomic, political and cultural models were on the line due to internal or international conflicts. Argentine literature and cinema have always thematized, reenacted, discussed and at times offered alternatives to these and other national crises. Among such undercurrent themes we will study confrontations of Buenos Aires city with the countryside; Peronism(s) and anti-Peronism; the disappearance of the civil society by the military in the 1960s and 1970s; the latest financial collapse of 2001; and current social struggles in search for gender and racial inclusion and diversity.  Virtual synchronous and asynchronous group discussions about the materials will be mandatory besides attending online lectures. All assignments and tests will happen via Canvas. Texts and films by E. Echeverría, J.L. Borges, J. Cortázar, E. Perón, R. Walsh, L. Valenzuela, G. Cabezón Cámara, F. Abate, J.J. Campanella, A. Caetano, A. Carri, L. Martel, and others.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:LIT; WCult:NW

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.
