SPAN 315 - HISPANIC WOMEN'S VOICES AND IMAGES
This four-credit course, entirely conducted in Spanish, offers a partial exploration of the literary and artistic production of women in the Hispanic Americas since the 17th century. We will read a number of poems, short stories, and testimonios by renowned women writers, as well as brief critical essays on gender and women's writing; view films and documentaries in Spanish by and on women; and listen to popular songs for clues about women's lives in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Latino U.S. Some of the questions we will explore are the following: What do these voices and images tell us about the situation of women in these societies? Do all Latin American women share the same concerns? What commonalities and differences among the voices can we identify and how can we explain them? What spaces have opened up for women since colonial times? How have women used language and images to engage with their marginalized place in Hispanic societies? Have they been empowered through the arts? What can we learn from these women artists? This course has been designed for students who have completed the intermediate year of Spanish or higher. It is a content-driven course as well as a course that will help you further develop proficiency in Spanish. It is intended to bridge the language and literature courses.
