FLS 3540 Race and Gender In Spanish American Literature (Dr. Vanesa Landrus) (Spring 2011 MWF 11 - 11:50 am)

This course examines the dynamics of identity construction of the black and female subject in Spanish PhotoAmerica from the early colonial period to the end of the nineteenth century. We will study the evolution of racial and gender constraints as seen through legal documents, chronicles, religious literature, poetry, newspapers and magazines. The course focuses on how black and female bodies were categorized and constructed within specific political and cultural contexts by colonial and nineteenth century authorities and other intellectual sectors of the population. We will explore how these subaltern subjects destabilized the political and social order in their search for freedom and power.
