Credits from World Languages Institute courses may be applied towards state certification and/or continued professional development. Teachers are required to complete successfully at least two Spanish courses in the World Languages Institute before applying to the MAT program.

SEMINAR IN HISPANIC LITERATURE: BASADO EN HECHOS REALES (CR. 3) 
16:940:598:01:15472
ONLINE
KAREN BISHOP

In this course for the Master of Arts Teaching Program in Spanish, we will read key works of literature that belong to the postmodern category of literature known variably as literary journalism, the testimonial novel, el relato real, metafiction, and the documentary novel. We will consider the complexities in storytelling and history-making that arise when recounting factual events by way of fiction and in constructing historical narratives that limn the literary. We will read some of the most significant works of twentieth-century Latin American literature to investigate what happens when the boundaries between history and fiction are blurred and ask what this hybrid enterprise reveals about our own conceptions of living and constructing history. This online course will be supplemented, by previous arrangement, by periodic individual and group in-person meetings throughout the semester. Please contact Professor Bishop via email with any questions about the course. Conducted in Spanish.
