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. A VARIETY OF LITERARY AND HISTORIOGRAPHICAL TEXTS AS WELL AS CRITICAL WORKS WILL BE USED TO COMPARE, ANALYZE AND DEBATE OVER THE RE-WRITING OF HISTORY.
