Syllabus
Prerequisites: None
Target skills and knowledge: - To be able to critically interact with the "latin-americanist discourse" in all its modulations, tendencies and strategies, as it happens in the great novels written by the authors of the so-called boom generation.
- To be able to deconstruct the milestones of the postcolonial discourse using the works of some other strictly contemporarry writers where peripheral identity seems to be starting to fall apart.

Lessons in Spanish.
Examination methods: Oral exam in Spanish
Assessment criteria: To develop the ability to have an active and critical conversation centered on the litterary works discussed during the classes.
Course unit contents: From macondo to Santa Teresa: the imaginary latinamerican city and the "myth" of peripheral identity.


This course aims at reflecting upon the narrative construction of "Spanish-american identity" between the "boom" and the contemporary by using the imaginary maps of the origins drawn by authors such as Juan Rulfo, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Roberto Bolano with the intention of reflecting on the cultural differences of the New World: the results of their inquiry was ambiguous, hanging suspended between utopy and scepticism, creating literary spaces aimed at being both mirages of the global and illusions of local, both in debt with the combative spirit of the Postcolonial and with the "weakness" of the Postmodern.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Conferences and workshops
