SPN 358 - The City of Borges


Through the gaze of Jorge Luis Borges and other Argentine writers, filmmakers, and intellectuals, this course analyzes the two forms in which we can interpret the idea of the city, or better yet, the cities of Borges. On the one hand, the course examines texts by Borges and others, in which the theme is his neighborhood, Palermo, and his city, Buenos Aires. On the other, it considers what Borges tells us about his “political” cities: Buenos Aires, Latin America, and the world. With a Global Studies component in Buenos Aires. Conducted in Spanish.

1 semester 3 credits.
