SPA 493B HISPANIC ORIENTALISM
An analysis of the public and private exchanges that deal with the Orient and Orientalism in Spanish and Spanish American literature. Through detailed reading of some of the principal texts of the three Spanish cultural traditions (Arab, Christian, and Jewish), we will examine the origin, engagement, and proliferation of these exchanges in poetry, narrative, history, and social and legal discourse of texts from Spain and Latin America. Clash, fusion, and resistance anchor the methodological approach to the field of Orientalism from this perspective.
