HISP 391 - Masterworks: Issues in Canon Formation

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

This course addresses the works of canonical writers (may include, e.g. Cervantes, Galdos, Borges, Garcia Marquez, etc.). The theoretical perspectives presented are driven by the interdisciplinary concerns that reflect current scholarship in Hispanic Studies, including the role of cultural 'masterpieces' in the creation of community, the role of the market in canon formation (what sells? where? why?), and the relationship between social movements, literacy, and canonical literature. May be repeated for credit if topic varies
