GSCL 199: Latin American Cultural Perspectives - Dr. April D. Marshall
In the 1960s, Latin American literature became known worldwide as never before. Writers such as Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Mario Vargas Llosa, Carlos Fuentes, Pablo Neruda, Octavio Paz, and Mario Vargas Llosa all became part of the general culture.
A History of Modern Latin America: 1800 to the Present examines the diverse and interlocking experiences of people of indigenous, African, and European backgrounds from the onset of independence until today. Illustrates and analyzes the major and minor events that shape history, the triumphs and defeats, and the everyday lives of people of varied classes and racial and ethnic backgrounds Intersperses accounts of the lives of prominent figures with those of ordinary people Emphasizes gender's role in influencing political and economic change and shaping cultural identity.
Latino literature is a vibrant field of study. It is both an "emerging" literature-as evidenced by the production rate of independent presses and more recent inroads made into mainstream publishing houses-and a rich historical one that continues to be documented and recovered in archival and personal collections. The Oxford Encyclopedia of Latina and Latino Literature will address numerous dimensions of the literature and critical approaches utilized to interpret it. It will offer a nuanced introduction to scholars of the historical circumstances and critical approaches to a variety of genres and themes in Latino literature.
