LACS 23 Testimonial and Truth in Latin America

From Conquest to Colony, to Independence, and on to the modern republics, Latin American political conflict has been conducted through textual battles as much as through physical ones. Testimonio, or the intertwining of appeals to justice in the public sphere, the personal, and the literary in historical accounts, persists as a significant mode of contemporary expression in Latin America. It claims to tell the truth about historical events and conflicts, yet it also demands an active, ethical, personal response from readers, courts, and governments. Its generic indeterminacy dares readers to challenge its truths.

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.
