Course description

Throughout the 20th century Latin America has experienced a symbiosis between its cultural production and its social and political realities. This course aims to deepen students' knowledge of Latin American cultural production with a particular emphasis on the 20th century, for example: "costumbrismo", muralism, indigenism, "modernismo". The course will look at major social and political movements and examine how these have interacted to fashion Latin America's cultural debates and production. This course may be cancelled if there are fewer than 20 enrolments.
