SPA 343 VOYAGES/DIS/NATURAL WONDRS
Pre-Hispanic literature engages a worldview of myth, nature, confrontation, religion, nation, and spirituality. Spanish-American literature begins with the writings of explorers, soldiers, and missionaries dedicated to the conquest of the New World and its natural resources. Students will explore competing genres including poetry, chronicles, travelogues, contracts, moral treatises, and dramas through the seventeenth century. Students will analyze the intersectionality of race, social class, ethnicity, history, and gender in original writing projects, journals, debates, and presentations.
