SPN 353 - From Macondo to Mcondo: Visions of Modern Latin America


A study of different cultural forms of portraying modern Latin America, from the magical town of Macondo in García Márquez’ Cien años de soledad to the hyper-globalized world of McOndo described by contemporary Chilean writer Alberto Fuguet. The course analyzes texts by Latin American writers from the Boom to the present, which refer back to and question canonical readings of the identity of the region made throughout history. Conducted in Spanish.

1 semester 3 credits.
