From Codex to Archives
This seminar will cover major works from the MA list on Colonial Literature for graduate students. The class will start by acknowledging pre-Hispanic literacy in the Mesoamerican Codex and move toward travel literature written during the contact period. The class will provide major readings, documentaries and film, digital archives, and all the necessary elements to assess the rich and conflictive period of Colonial Latin America. Bring your imagination, intellectual curiosity and creativity to see how Latin America had a past that is absolutely breathtaking. Maya/ Aztec/ Inca Empires and Aymara thought will be examined throughout the semester.
