LATI 446 - Constructions of a Female Killer

Cross-Listed as HISP 446  and WGSS 346 
The rise in femicide across Latin America, most shockingly exhibited in the city of Juarez, Mexico, has resulted in broad discussions of women’s relationship with violence. However, what happens when the traditional paradigm is inverted and we explore women as perpetrators, rather than victims, of violence? This class will dialogue with selected Latin American and Latino narratives (including novels, short stories, films, and newspapers) constituting different representations of women who kill. This course satisfies the Area 4 requirement for the Hispanic & Latin American Studies major. Prerequisite(s): HISP 307  or   or permission of instructor Alternate years. (4 Credits)
