SPA 358 - “Writing the Amerindian Americas” (=SPA 405, spring 2018)

Cross-listed with SPA 405 for SPRING 2018 ONLY.


This course examines the European imperial project in the Americas through the lens of Indigenous writing and cultural responses. By examining indigenous texts from throughout the Americas, we will trace the way native orality and writing has negotiated the impact of imperialism, as well as the various ways in which these responses have helped to shape hybrid, autochthonous cultures throughout the western hemisphere. Although the bulk of the materials will be from the 16th through the 19th centuries, we will also examine more contemporary texts and cultural artifacts.

Satisfies an area IV requirement for the Hispanic Studies major.
Satisfies the Literary Studies, Creative Writing, and Rhetoric distribution requirement.
