5. "SO CLOSE to AMERICA, SO FAR from GOD" : A STUDY of "AMERICAN PRESENCE" in LATINO LITERATURE - Porfirio Diaz

Program: Inservice Courses

Audience: Teachers, Teacher Assistants, Guidance Counselors, Administrators and Support Staff

Dates: 10/22/2019 to 12/17/2019

One of the most publically contested issues in American society today and one that every educator has a stake in, concerns Latin America and Latinos. Although in the American media there is much discussion, often contentious, of Americans' attitudes towards Latinos, the inverse is not the case. This course will examine, through poetry, essays, memoirs and novels, how the presence of "America" in Latino literature can historically evince the attitudes of Latinos towards the United States. All works were originally written in Spanish and will be presented in English translations. The works that will be used are: The Labyrinth of Solitude by Octavio Paz, The Old Gringo by Carlos Fuentes, "To Roosevelt" by Ruben Dario, The Feast of the Goat by Mario Varghas Llosa, The Motorcycle Diaries by Ernesto "Che" Guevara, The Country Under My Skin: A Memoir of Love and War by Gioconda Belli and "In Puerto Rico We Inherit Your Wars" and other poems by Raquel Salas Rivera. When appropriate, film adaptions of some works and podcasts with authors will be used to enrich understanding. All primary and secondary source material will be provided by the instructor.
