SPA 347 - Imperial Cities


Focused study of the way urban space becomes the staging ground for the conquest of the New World, and ultimately, the administration and consolidation of global imperial order throughout the viceregal period. Although much of the semester focuses on Mexico City, this course develops a general vocabulary to talk about the ways urban literary and intellectual culture were inextricable from a discourse about empire and the increasingly urban character of imperial modernity. Conducted in Spanish.

Satisfies Area IV for the major in Hispanic Studies and counts towards Latin American Studies.
Satisfies the Pre 1800 requirement
