SPAN 329 Literature and Politics of Uruguay 1960-2010
The scholarship of literature and politics is seen through the lens of shifting notions of nation-building and national identity. Focusing specifically on Uruguayan literature, this course surveys some of the most recent writing on literature and politics in Latin America. Attention is given to the works of national and transnational communities, the crafting of culture by the political elites, and the discourse of resistance to authoritarianism in a variety of genres, including poetry, epistolary and testimonial literature, short-fiction and the essay. Selected texts from Mario Benedetti, Mauricio Rosencof, Marisa Silva Schultze, Fernando Butazzoni, Adolfo Wasem, Marcelo Estefanell and Raul Sendic. Course will be conducted in Spanish and will include a research project. (LA)
