SPAN 055. Puerto Rico y su discurso literario

Puerto Rico is one of the last standing colonies in the world. Puerto Rican and Nuyorican artists and writers have faced their anachronistic status with intelligence, inventiveness and humor. This class will study the Puerto Rican imagination through the analysis of a range of works, including narrative, theater, creative essays, as well as film and the visual arts. We will focus particularly on 20th- and 21st- century works produced by both mainland and diaspora creators. We will pay special attention to the relationship between aesthetics, nationalism and colonialism, diaspora, race and gender.
