SN 373 - Literature and Identity Politics in Peru

(3.00 cr.)

Examines what Martin Stabb so aptly called the "quest of identity." Works written over five centuries are compared to see how ethnicity, politics, religion, and gender negotiate with each other in their pursuit of identity. Five hundred years of scripted ideological activity is brought into focus: the Conquest, the Colonial Era, the Early Republican Era, and the twentieth century. A diverse sampling of genre types, chronicles, poetry, testimonio, fiction, and essay is included. Of special interest is the problem of representation when men and women of Criollo, Quechua, African, and Asian heritages embark on a quest to define themselves.

Prerequisite: SN 203  or SN 217  or written permission of the instructor.
