Over the past two centuries, in an apparently perpetual movement towards democratic independence, Latin America has confronted ruptures in tradition and experimented with a variety of revolutionary discourses to project its multiple pasts into the future. This course will read the postcolonial back into the European and US epistemai, and vice-versa, exploring how Latin Americans have given voice to their views on political transitions, both democratic and otherwise. Discussions and presentations will facilitate the development of oral fluency. Students will expand their descriptive, analytical, and polemical vocabulary, not to mention their sense of hyperbole. Conducted in Spanish, at the low- to mid-intermediate level.
