Indigenous Literatures of the Americas in Translation

LAS A336
3.00 crs.

This course examines the literary and cinematic works of indigenous authors across the Americas. In this writing intensive course, students learn how to read, think and write critically about literature while exploring the historical and cultural realities of indigenous peoples in the Americas. The study of this literature adds nuance to the anthropological, sociological and historical “facts” to these different groups and their literatures. A focus on translation theory as the point of departure allows students a critical approach to these texts. This course is cross-listed with ENGL-A336: Students only receive credit for successfully completing the first instance of the course/s.
