HISP 366 - Love and Death: Jewish Literature and Culture of the Americas LxC

HC ARHU CD
2 credits
The iconic arrival at Ellis Island was contemporaneous with mass Jewish immigration throughout the Americas. Framing Jewish literature in a multilingual, pan-American context, we will study the deep specificity of texts as well as major themes: alienation, sport, philosophy, comedy and love. Authors include Lispector, Pizarnik, Borges, Dropkin, Moscona, Roth, and more. This will be a multi-lingual LxC discussion section, looking at texts from the main course in the original languages together with facing English translation in Spanish, Portuguese, Yiddish, and Ladino.

Prerequisites: None. Corequisite: CMPL/HISP/JWST 365.
