Taught in English, this course offers students the opportunity to study in translation major works from Spanish and Portuguese-speaking contexts that shed light on human concerns, ideas, and realities. Students will interrogate the meaning and value of reading literature as a laboratory of the mind that affords insight into human experience, in particular the experiences of individuals who belong to cultures, races, or genders different from one’s own. No knowledge of Spanish or Portuguese required.
