HISP 374 - Imagining the Spanish Transatlantic Empire: Early Modern Hispanic Culture (1492-1700)

Fall or Spring (3) Terukina, Staff Prerequisite(s): One HISP course numbered between 290 and 360, or consent of instructor

An introduction to the Spanish empire as "imagined" in the early modern period. We examine cultural artifacts (novels, theatrical representations, chronicles, etc.), the ideological foundations upon which the Spanish empire legitimizes itself, and investigate the subordinating representation of women, Muslims/moriscos, indigenous peoples, and their dissent and resistance.
