Materials will include films and documentaries, paintings and photography, propaganda posters and newsreels, radio and television, monuments and comics, oral histories and fiction. In addition, we will read critical and theoretical texts on historical trauma and individual and collective memory as well as amnesia. This course will be conducted in Spanish. WRIT
