Topic for fall 2020: Race, Class, and Gender: Being in Latin America. This course introduces students to debates on race, class, and gender and how these relate to Latin American identity. We will look at literary texts, some artworks and film, in order to explore identitary issues across the region. We will consider historical, cultural, and social factors shaping the texts under study. Through textual analysis, we will hone our reading and interpretative skills, as well as our skills in oral and written communication. Authors include: Juan Francisco Manzano, José Martí, Isabel Allende, Sergio Vodanovic, Judith Ortiz Cofer, and Manuel Puig, among others. This course is taught in Spanish.

Topic for fall 2020: Representation and Film-Style: Latin American Cinema. This course offers an advanced introduction to the history of Latin American cinema and film culture. With a comparative approach, we will study cinema’s capacity to motivate political reflection, build modern identities, and shape public discourse in a region rife with social inequality. Travelling across regions and époques, we will cover six cinematic periods: Contemporary Cinema, New Latin American Cinema, Art Cinema, Neorealism, Studio Cinema, and Silent Cinema. We will pay attention to the historical and sociopolitical contexts films spring from and reflect upon. We will also develop the critical tools and learn basic theoretical tenets for the study of moving images. Therefore, we will pay attention to film-style (camera movement, mise-en-scène, lighting, editing, sound, genre) and consider the film culture surrounding specific films. This course is taught in Spanish.
