ENGL 600: Other Ethnic Literature (focus on Latin America)

This section of Engl 600 will introduce students to major Latin American authors and works, locating Latin America as a geographical and cultural entity with close ties to the US. From reading Borges and Márquez to Carpentier and Vargas Llosa, students will engage the literary trends, themes, and figures that exercised a vast influence on World Literature during much of the 20th Century. The course will close by examining the work of Lamberto Roque Hernández, a Zapotec immigrant from Oaxaca whose literary production remaps literary notions of Latin American, US, and Latina/o literatures.
