This seminar explores the links between critical thought and aesthetic production of the 20th and 21st century in Latin America. We will choose the modes of irruption of the popular as a common thread of the different aesthetic and theoretical currents that have shaped the tradition of critical thought. We will explore how image of the people and the popular appears and changes through fiction and non-fiction texts. We will build a conceptual map that allows us to focus on three key moments in the production of Latin American critical thought: the beginning of the 20th century, marked by the scene of the avant-garde, the critical turn brought about in the 70s and the irruption of new critical apparatus of the XXI century. We will study authors such as d Andrade, Campobello, Vicens, Mariatequi, Zavaleta Mercado, among others.

When Offered Fall or Spring.
