Spring 2010

"Jewish Gauchos," "Tropical Synagogues," "Poncho and Talmud," "Matza and Mate." This course will examine the native and diasporic worlds described in the apparent dichotomies that come together in the Latin American Jewish Literature. The class will trace the different trajectories of time, space and gender of the Jewish experience in Latin America, where issues of migration, memory and hybridization come to life through poetry, narrative and drama.

Prerequisites: Spanish 102, placement, or consent.
