FSEM: Latin American Cultr Nar
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
This seminar will explore the rich culture of Latin America with an emphasis on the social, historical, literary, and artistic trends that have shaped this continent and region on the move in the five hundred and twenty years since the arrival of the Conquistadors. We will examine culture through poetry, music, and film. Memoirs of individuals living across different cultures will provide first-hand accounts of contrasts between national identities. Students will broaden and deepen their perspective on how the United States has evolved in relation to the twenty-plus countries that share the Western Hemisphere, and to contemporary issues of immigration and the dynamics of social change. Students will do critical and analytical reading, participate and lead group discussions, and complete an individual research project. Knowledge of Spanish or Portuguese is advantageous: La verdad, aunque severa, es amiga verdadera.
