Course description

This course aims to provide students with critical tools in order to examine the literary, cinematic and musical productions in the Latin American Spanish speaking world. It will deepen students' understanding of Latin American aesthetic practices through the critical analysis of fictional and visual texts. This course will explore how these cultural practices are bases on what is called the colonial wound and as a result of this contested nature have built in a corpus of discourses which question and challenge hegemonic cultural productions making emergent the darker side of European Modernity, and in doing so they bring further emergent new and challenging aesthetic forms. This course will be delivered in Spanish. This course may be cancelled if there are fewer than 20 enrolments.
