This unit aims to acquaint students with current debates within cultural studies and cultural theory in relation to the construction of cultural identities in Hispanic America since Independence. The course will thus have a historical as well as a social and cultural focus. Students will critically engage with a selection of fictional, historical and theoretical writings which deal specifically with issues of culture and identity, especially as these relate to the formation of Hispanic-American nation-states and the advent of modernity.
