Metafiction and Authorship (SPA4213.01)

Sarah Harris

This course will be an exploration of metafiction and authorship in Spanish literature, film, and other arts. Through a careful consideration of several important, often playful, yet sharply critical works in Spanish, as well as their most significant theoretical underpinnings, students will read and discuss text that calls attention to itself as an artifice, and therefore, highlights broad questions of reality and fiction. This will also be a course on the socio-historical context that has surrounded the production and consumption of specific canonical works. The focus of the course will be on student-generated discussion and critical thinking about texts and concepts. Students will develop and defend ideas in spoken and written language. Conducted in Spanish. Intermediate-high level.

Prerequisites: Five terms of college-level Spanish or permission of the instructor.
