HISP 341 - Inquisitorial Practices: Heretics, Torture & Fear

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
Archival dust may cover Inquisition records, but inquisitorial practices that punish deviant behavior are still very much current. This course studies how the Spanish Inquisition (1478-1834) faced social disruptions in Spain and the Americas, and the ways people resisted. We will analyze the roles of torture, fear, and surveillance in early modern and contemporary times through literary, visual, and archival materials. Taught in Spanish. One-third of the class will take place at the AMAM.

Prerequisites: HISP 304.
