Critical Readings in Cuban, Puerto Rican and Dominican Literature

HISP 2520Q S01 [CRN: 16962]

This course traces the emergence and evolution of nationalist expression in literary and political texts from Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Beginning with early anti-colonial and nation-building writing, we focus particularly on the idea of the island in articulations of national culture. We address key figures in the intellectual history of the Caribbean; essays, novels and poetry from the nineteenth-century to the twenty-first; and recent critical and theoretical work on the Spanish Caribbean. Weekly topics include the intersection of race and nationalism; exile and migration; and transnational ties to the broader Caribbean, the U.S. and Latin America. This course is for graduate students only.
