Revolutions present opportunities for new forms of artistic expression to emerge, capturing the singularities of these events and tracing the creation of the alternative worlds that they projected. To what extent have Latin American Literature and Films made use of the power unleashed by such radical changes? In this course, topics will include revolutionary movements in Mexico, Argentina, Haiti and Cuba. The source material includes literary works from writers Nellie Campobello, Juan Rulfo, Julio Cortázar, Jorge L. Borges, Alejandra Pizarnik, Alejo Carpentier, alongside films from directors Sergei Eisenstein, Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, and Alfonso Cuarón, among others.

This course counts as literature credit toward the Spanish minor.
