CINE 350 - Indigenous Peoples in Andean Literature and Film (OFFERED IN SPANISH)

SPAN 396
404 |Jean Knight |MWF 12-1pm

This course offers a survey of Andean literature and film starting with the Incan civilization in pre-Colombian Peru and ending with the Andean diaspora in the US at the present time. In addition to covering all of the major periods, we will also study a wide variety of works including documentaries, histories, chronicles, poetry, essays, short stories, novels, and film. Since the time frame is vast, and the texts are diverse, it will help us to organize our investigations around a central thematic focus: representations of indigenous peoples. As we examine how these subjects have been portrayed throughout the ages on the page and on the screen, we will gain a better understanding of the individuals, events, and cultural forces that have shaped the region.
