Description of contents: programme
The course will study the emergence of forms of identity, action and representation in a culturally plural world with an accent on the narratives and discourses of social identity and the way they convey and express power conflicts. The construction of the image of the other through different artistic and cultural practices, particularly the literary one, is presented as one of the fundamental questions in the definition and characterization of contemporary cultures, and constitutes a reference theme in postcolonial studies. Through the course, the student will have a solid knowledge of the forms of identity and gender that emerged after the disappearance of the great cultural hegemonies, as well as the theories that have dealt with them, they will have the conceptual and methodological instruments to study them, They will be able to handle the bibliography on the subject and to prepare a short paper on the issues involved in the subject with the pertinent academic and conceptual rigor. The course will study the emergence of forms of identity, action and representation in a culturally plural world with an accent on the narratives and discourses of social identity and the way they convey and express power conflicts. Latin America will be the cultural space in which all theoretical approaches to the postcolonial will be exemplified. From the ¿invention of America¿ to post-truth in the 21st century, some of the most significant cultural representations in Latin America will be debated.
