SP 405 - Artistic Expression and Social Movements in Latin America (4 Cr.)

(LAM 405)
This course analyzes the connections between the struggle for sociopolitical change and the cultural manifestations they have engendered in Latin America. In particular we will examine how the struggle for social justice – through political organization, underground movements and outright revolution – inspires and
influences artistic expression such as literature, visual art, music and film. Some of the questions that will guide our study are: How can the arts promote the ideals of sociopolitical struggle? And how can it challenge unfulfilled promises? How does it unite and inform people in a cause? How can art help to construct or deconstruct the national narrative? Prerequisite: SP 322 . Fall semester, even years. First offered 2022. Murphy.
