Spanish American Novel


The course will introduce students to the analysis of Spanish American novels from the second part of the twentieth century to the twenty-first century. We will study the works by Spanish American authors that responded to the crisis induced by capitalist development and dictatorship, colonialism, expropriation, and extractionism, white supremacism and patriarchalism, and how they explore and push the discursive limits of national sovereignty and capitalism and how they imposed their order upon living and non-living beings in the Americas. The course also explores how these novels respond to ecological crisis and the anthropocene, from a racial, gendered and transgendered perspective.
