SPAN 4030

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

This course examines the relationship between literature and empire in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Spain. Over the course of the semester, we will engage postcolonial thought to bring new critical discussions to canonica as well as lesser known writers of the period. At the same time, we will examine the critical limits of postcolonial theory, as it is primarily rooted in a European literary tradition that typically excludes Spain. Some of our guiding questions include: Why is nineteenth-century Spain hardly ever remembered as an imperial nation? How did these other geographical spaces shape the symbolic contours of Spanish modernity? What is the relationship between culture, empire, and nation?
