Type LECTURE
Course Description Prerequisites: (SPAN UN3349) and (SPAN UN3350) In this course, acclaimed Spanish author Kirmen Uribe—currently engaged in writing a Barnard-set novel—will guide students in reading prose from the writer’s point of view: paying attention to experimentation with genre, voice, language, and the construction of the text’s audience. Discussions will also focus on writers’ imagination and creative process; their relationship to the publishing world; and their active position-taking in society. The course will focus especially on Iberian (Spanish, Catalan, Galician and Basque) and Latin American new voices in relation to global movements. Students will produce their choice of two of the following assignments: a video poem, a podcast, the beginning of a novel, a TED talk, or an academic/critical essay. Readings are in Spanish and English; class discussion and assignments will be in Spanish.
