Course Description This course gives students an opportunity to learn about the history of Argentine culture by studying the fifty-year long career of Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), the most important Latin American writer of the twentieth century. Students must read complex texts, discuss them in Spanish, and write about them in Spanish. After taking this course, a student should be able to study or work in Argentina with confidence.  Heritage Spanish-speakers will be able to hone their language skills as well since the course requires a good deal of writing. Thus these students as well will be able to study, travel, and work in Argentina and not find themselves in an alien culture.
