THIS COURSE IS TAUGHT IN BUENOS AIRES

National Identities in the New Millennium

At the end of 20th-century, national narratives in Latin-America and Spain faced changes and redefinitions. Migrations, the emergence of formerly repressed identities, and the presence of a changing cultural market fueled the appearance of voices considered unconventional a few decades ago. Ranging from the end of 20th-century up to the present, the Spanish and Latin American texts discussed in this course question or redefine the traditional discourses that were officially marked as representative of the national identities. The analysis will account for current debates on geopolitics, linguistic and gender issues, as well as those belonging to the construction of alternative communal identities. (1 unit)
