SPA 336 Themes of Justice in Latin American Lit & Film (Taught in Spanish)

3 hours 

How do post-authoritarian and post-dictatorial regimes deal with legacies of violence and human rights abuses? How do they address the demands for justice that arise after systematic mass atrocities? Should we remember or forget past atrocities? This course seeks to answer these questions as they apply to Latin American societies by exploring these themes in literature, film, various other texts, and elements of popular culture such as the construction of memorials and public spaces. This course will be taught entirely in Spanish.
