OSPSANTG 47: Modern Latin American Myths and Icons

What is the status of myths in modern Latin America? Is myth necessarily pre-modern? How does myth, which is essentially narrative, meet icons, which are essentially visual and tactile? How do myths and icons operate politically? These are some of the questions we will explore. The course is organized in modules, each devoted to a central "mythical" and iconic figure: Che Guevara, Violeta Parra, García Márquez, and Eva Perón. The goal of the course is twofold: on the one hand, we would like students to become familiar with some of the most popular modern Latin American myths/icons and how they cut across genres, periods, and media. On the other, beyond familiarity, students will become participants, both creatively and critically, in the recreation of such figures. We will consider a variety of sources and make extensive use of local opportunities, such as visiting museums or attending concerts
