Along with intermittent textual analysis and some socio-historical context, the intention is to obsess over the ideology of that most lauded of genres, the Latin American short story, from modernismo to its contemporary forms. Students will develop their oral and written skills, progressing from paragraph-level exposition to imitation to an initial defense of ideas. The course should also provide contextual support for future studies in Spanish, not to mention other fields.
Low-intermediate level. Conducted in Spanish.
