LT 326 - Indigenous Literature

This course concentrates on the historical and literary perceptions of the natives before and during the Spanish Conquest. In order to achieve this purpose, we will focus on the relationship between literary representations of "the other". Also, the idea that History is a mixture of truth and fiction will be explored through selections of the Spanish Chronicles on the Conquest. In reading samples of these chronicles, we will also study its Eurocentric point of view and how it helped shape the way Europe, from its self-proclaimed superiority, defined the New World.

Students will be expected to read, analyze, compare, contrast and discuss each text. So that they discuss and write effectively, their Spanish level should be advanced.
