Inhoud

This course gives students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and understanding of problems surrounding struggles of identities in the broad, transatlantic Hispanic world. After two lectures on the theoretical and methodological framework related to the study of cultural identity and diversity, this course will focus on struggles of identity in Spain, Latin America and Hispanics in the US in the 20th and 21st centuries. Different themes will be discussed, including national and regional identities in Spain, indigenous communities in the Amazonian region and conflicts regarding gender and sexuality in the Hispanic world. We will study different art forms in which diversity and identity are negotiated politically, culturally and aesthetically. Important contributions to postcolonial theory, decolonialism and feminist theory as they were developed from within the Hispanic intellectual community will be discussed in class. Primary materials will be drawn from various realms, including literature, film, documentary and social media.
