[SPAN 285] Human Rights and Hispanic Cultures

In this course, students explore how narratives, memoirs, plays, poetry, and film tell the stories of victims and witnesses of human rights violations in the Spanish-speaking world. While students read about and discuss the historical and political contexts of violations of human rights, they are also expected to consider how writers and filmmakers use language, images, and symbolism to discuss the rights, often abused, of minority groups, indigenous peoples, women, and/or children. The variety of texts and films also serve as a basis for the development of students’ reading, critical thinking, and writing skills.
