“Space and Identity in Spanish America Literature. ” This course focuses on the representations of space and geographic locations in fiction (novels/short stories), essays, journals and the press in Spanish America from the Colonial period through the end of the 20th Century. We will explore how Spanish American writers have used these representations as a means of defining social and political boundaries as well as for the construction of national, ethnic, cultural and personal identities.
