SPAN 6780

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

This course explores how Caribbean music-such as son, merengue, and reggaetón-dialogues with literature in Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and New York.  Theoretical readings on Caribbeanness (Benítez-Rojo, Glissant) and ethnomusicology (Flores, Moore, Rivera-Rideau) animate our interdisciplinary examination of Aftro-Antillean poetics (Nicolás, Guillén), Cuban neo-Barogue aesthetics (Severo Sarduy), coloniality and cultural consumption (Luis Rafael Sánchez), queer Caribbean diasporas (Mayra Santos-Febres), and soundtracks from Dominican urbanity (Rita Indiana).

When Offered Spring.
