New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2020


SPAN 80.22 The Boom Novels of Spanish America

This course examines Spanish America’s explosive entrance onto the transnational literary scene in the 1960s during the Cold War. The novelists most typically associated with this “Boom” in Spanish American literature include Gabriel García Márquez, Julio Cortázar, Mario Vargas Llosa, Carlos Fuentes, and Alejo Carpentier. We will explore the political, economic, and aesthetic phenomena that produced the Boom. We will also study the effects of this Boom on both the development of the novel as a genre and on the global dissemination of the idea of Spanish America as a single cultural and ideological entity.

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.
