ENGL 53.32 Literature and Culture of the Americas

This course surveys a series of critical paradigms for studying American literature and culture in a hemispheric context. We’ll explore a variety of approaches to hemispheric literary and cultural studies, considering reanimations of the conquest, comparative and shared romantic and revolutionary discourses, the literature of the hemispheric South, borderlands studies, the study of state-sponsored literary institutions that cross national borders, and inter-American attempts to imagine solidarity across the hemisphere. At the end of the course, students will have the opportunity to produce a creative project rendering their own hemispheric imaginary. Authors may include Leonora Sansay, Martin Delany, María Ruiz de Burton, Jose Martí, Américo Paredes, Carmen Lyra, Gabriel García Márquez, Jamaica Kincaid, and Giannina Braschi. All texts are available in translation.

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.
