Prerequisites

Very good knowledge of written and spoken Spanish. Good knowledge of Latin-American history and culture

Educational goals

Provide critical, historical, political and methodological tools for understanding the development of the twentieth century Hispano-American indigenist literature. At the end of the course, students will have a view of the literary representation of indigenous cultures in their conflictual relationship with the dominant culture and society.

Course content

The course will introduce students to the Indigenist literature through a brief historical-literary excursus, highlighting the role exercised in the theoretical and cultural sphere by José C. Mariategui. Then three exemplary narrative works will be analyzed: "Huasipungo" by Jorge Icaza, "Toà" by César Uribe Piedrahita and "Los perros hambrientos" by Ciro Alegria.
Other short texts will be suggested as further reading for independent activities or brief seminarial discussions.

Teaching methods

Frontal lessons in Spanish with readings, translations and analysis of the texts indicated in the bibliography. In the last part of the course students will be invited to read short stories proposed by the teacher and, after a brief presentation, discuss their most relevant peculiarities (themes and style) with the whole class.

Assessment and Evaluation

The exam will be oral and focused on the texts presente during the lessons in order to
to verify the students' acquisition of the notions imparted.

Further information

Students who cannot find the texts listed in the bibliography or need any further explanation about the syllabus should contact the teacher by e-mail erminio.corti@unibg.it or during the consultation hours which will be officially announced.
