HISP 426 - Parody in the Postmodern Hispanic World

Western societies and literary traditions use parody to measure, shape, and change cultural values and identities. Parody is considered to be an amorphous genre that adapts itself and evolves in time, along with the cultural environments in which it exists. This course offers students the opportunity to examine the concept of parody and its application to specific narrative texts produced in the Hispanic world during its postmodern era. Texts examined include fiction and non-fiction, cinematic, and other multimedia arts. This course satisfies the Area 2 requirement for the Hispanic & Latin American Studies major. Prerequisite(s): HISP 307  or consent of the instructor. Offered occasionally. (4 Credits)
