LALC 390 19th C. Chilean Literature
Cross-listed with SPAN 410-01.This seminar examines several major historical events and sociopolitical issues of nineteenth-century Chile and their re-conceptualizations in the foundational literary texts of the era. Topics may include: the wars of independence and the search for political order, the conservative settlement, the war against the Peru-Bolivian Confederation, the Liberal impulse, the formation of the Generation of 1842, and the War of the Pacific. To fully engage with the most pressing issues of the past, we will frequently consult primary source materials, including digitized reproductions of 19th century periodicals and political documents. Following the bicentennial celebration of Chile’s independence in 2010, we will also consider how several of the historical and literary figures and historical events have been commemorated in more contemporary times, through film, television programs, and other media.
