Students examine texts that define a people or reflect and clarify an aspect of their national character in the process of becoming or that describe events representing significant turning points in the trajectory of that evolution. (Distribution Reqs:Humanities)

Learning Goals:   To study the evolution and present status of the culture and ideas in the countries of Spanish America. To study the complex process of the cultural evolution of Spanish America. To emphasize the relevance to contemporary Spanish American culture of major historical events: the discovery and conquest; the wars of independence; and the founding of the new nations. Historical content is briefly sketched and an attempt is made to trace the evolution of the "essay" in the course of the XX and XXI centuries. Much of the best of Spanish American literature has been and still is essentially "committed" to an intense and continual evaluation of the role of man in society and of the never ending conflict between individual liberty and authoritarian exigencies of the state.
