Course Description

ENG 280L
Poetry and Social Crisis in the 21st century in Mexico and the Americas

Students will be introduced to a body of contemporary literary works, as well as artist and citizen responses, in Latin America that explore various aspects of forms of social crisis. From post-dictatorial Chile, to violence against women on the US-Mexico border, to victims of the "War Against Drugs" policy, the last decade has seen the emergence of literary and visual works that address and explore the effects of such forms of violence, especially against women, indigenous groups and unarmed citizens. Special attention will be given to poetry but other genres will be included as well.
