Exile and Immigration and Latino and Hispanic Literatures
SPAN 263 SP
During the past two centuries, Latin American writers and intellectuals have produced important works while living outside their countries of birth, whether in Latin America, Europe, or in the United States. Recently,
in the U.S., a good deal of writing has been produced by "Hispanic" subjects both from the temporary position of exile and from the more stable position of belonging. This course will examine these issues, paying
attention to the ways in which exile, immigration, and shifting national borders have informed, both as reality and discourse, "Spanish-American" and "Latino" writings.
Authors will include:
Gabriel García Márquez, Rosario Ferré, José Martí, Ana Castillo, Richard Rodríguez, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Tato Laviera, René Marqués, Rolando Hinojosa, Guillermo Gómez-Peña.
EXAMINATIONS AND ASSIGNMENTS
Oral presentations; three short papers (3-5); final paper. Readings, class discussion, and written work in Spanish only.
