Special Topics in Iberian and Latin American Studies; The Spanish-American Short Story

Putting literary texts in dialogue with historical/political developments, the first part of the course will provide a panoramic view of the short story from the early nineteenth century to contemporary trends. We will then focus on key writers such as Borges, Cortazar, and Rulfo, before proceeding to more recent writers from across the region. Taught in Spanish.
