Assessment
and Goals
:

Assessment: Discussions, oral presentation, short papers and a final paper Goals: Students should demonstrate the ability to analyze literary texts, using the text as well as the aesthetic, political, historical, and philosophical context in which the work was produced.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE SIGNIFICANTLY EXPANDS COVERAGE OF COLONIAL LATIN AMERICAN LITERATURE WITHIN THE SPANISH CURRICULUM, AND PRESENTS A COMPLEX AND BALANCED APPROACH TO THE PERIOD. IT DRAWS FROM A RANGE OF TEXTS, INCLUDING HISTORY AND HISTORIOGRAPHY, LITERATURE AND CRITICISM, AND FILM, TO PROVIDE A BASIS FOR THE ANALYSIS AND DISCUSSION OF THE PERIOD.
