SPAN 231-01 Framing the Marginal I/Eye
Instructor: Amaury Leopoldo Sosa
Course Description:
Cross-listed with LALC 220-03 and FMST 210-02. How is the marginal I/Eye fashioned and embodied in its encounter with power and other individuals? In what ways does the I/Eye serve as an organizing principle around which tactics and strategies of resistance, revolt, and social justice are mobilized? In this course, we will explore the different ways individuals go about occupying that I/Eye, how they maintain and/or challenge it, and how they are compelled and/or inspired to present it to themselves and those around them. Our primary objects of study will be texts produced in Spain, Latin America, and the Caribbean, and the visual reproductions carried out by film directors from these regions as well as from the United States. On one hand, our conversations will center on the historical, cultural, political space marginal writers, artists, activists occupied and the I-texts they composed. On the other, our discussions will assess the cinematic eye each director crafted in their adaptation and appropriation of the marginal I.

Course Description:

This particular course has been designed with some specific ideas in mind: through Latin American literature, film and art, we will address the following questions: Who am I? What can I know? and How shall I live?, emphasizing our place in this world and the civic responsibilities we have towards the society we share with others.

SPAN 231-04 Monsters and Other Worlds. Tales and Themes of the Supernatural through Women’s Narratives
Instructor: Toni Rivas Bonillo
Course Description:
Cross-listed with LALC 200-06 and WGSS 201-02.The primary goal of this course is to develop students' writing skills in Spanish. This course will focus on stories, films, and other cultural artifacts that explore alternative representations of reality. During the semester, we will analyze works by Silvina Ocampo, Cristina Fernndez Cubas, Patricia Esteban Erls, Julio Cortzar, Remedios Varo, and Guillermo del Toro (among others). Students will learn about social, political, and cultural contexts necessary to illuminate themes and contexts related to the different course materials and to shape critical responses to works in the fantastic genre. Among other questions, the course will seek to understand how the different types of fantasy work, why writers explore horror and fear, and what lies behind the creation of monsters and supernatural entities. A special emphasis of the course will be the work of women authors. Traditionally overlooked, women writers, painters, and directors have contributed significantly to the development of the fantastic genre; one of the goals of this class, therefore, will be to explore and study these contributions. Among other issues, discussions, activities, and writing assignments will deal with the stereotyping female characters and their roles in fantastic fiction as well as how these conventional tropes have been challenged by women creators. Both in class and homework assignments approach writing as a process, and students will engage in drafts, peer editing, and revisions of their work.
