Spanish 274: Contemporary Issues in the Spanish Speaking World.
GE: ORC
Prof. Amy Hill-Cosimini, MTWThF 11:00-12:00 and 1:00-3:00

 This course introduces students to critical perspectives on memory, identity, and human rights and their intersections in contemporary Latin American society. Students explore central questions of how we remember in different mediums: How and by whom is memory produced and promoted? Are there winners and losers in the memory market? And if so, what additional factors contribute to the profound permanence of one memory and the failure of another? Students focus on oral Spanish production by discussing, debating, and presenting on a variety of texts, including testimonial literature, films, television programs, memory sites, and multi-media art installations, in order to address these issues, and deepen their knowledge of the uses and abuses of memory within Latin America.
