Syllabus Description:

Otherness in the Sixteenth Century

Literature and other modes of cultural production in early modern Spain are frequently marked by representations of difference.  Tensions based in ethnicity, wealth, and gender drive narrative conflicts that are often never fully resolved.  Taken collectively, the readings for this class will help to illuminate the complex social divisions at work in this pivotal moment in Spanish history.  Genres to be covered will include the novela morisca, the novela picaresca, the crónica de indias, and a selection of lyric poetry from the period.
