We will compare and contrast short selections from 19th, 20th and 21st centuries novels, while analyzing two masterpieces in depth. Taught in Spanish.

ILAC 149: The Laboring of Diaspora & Border Literary Cultures (COMPLIT 149, CSRE 149)

Focus is given to emergent theories of culture and on comparative literary and cultural studies. How do we treat culture as a social force? How do we go about reading the presence of social contexts within cultural texts? How do ethno-racial writers re-imagine the nation as a site with many "cognitive maps" in which the nation-state is not congruent with cultural identity? How do diaspora and border narratives/texts strive for comparative theoretical scope while remaining rooted in specific local histories. Note: This course must be taken for a letter grade to be eligible for WAYS credit. In AY 2020-21, a "CR" grade will satisfy the WAYS requirement.

ILAC 193: The Cinema of Pedro Almodovar

This course studies Pedro Almodóvar's development from his directorial debut to the present, from the shock value of the early films to the award-winning mastery of the later ones.

ILAC 278A: Senior Seminar: The Iberian Pastoral

What does pastoral literature, with its lovesick shepherds, acts of self-immolation, and aquatic nymphs, have to teach us? For early modern Portugal and Spain, it formed a surprisingly indispensable foundation for the social. From the earliest lyric traditions to the rise of the modern novel, the pastoral is everywhere. Through a close analysis and discussion of early modern texts in Spanish and Portuguese, as well as some theoretical/philosophical texts in English, we will explore the place of the pastoral in early modern Iberia and reckon with its impact on our own sense of the past. Authors include: Bernardim Ribeiro, Francisco de Sá de Miranda, Garcilaso de la Vega, Joan Boscà, Jorge de Montemayor, Luís de Camões, Diogo Bernardes, Luis de Góngora, and Violante do Céu.
