Knowledge-Values Courses: Writing About Literature

This course offers readings, discussion and textual analysis of selected works, including novels, short stories, drama, poetry and film by Central American authors during periods of revolution.  In this writing intensive course, students learn how to read, think and write critically about literature while exploring the historical and cultural realities of Central America revolutions.  The study of literature adds nuance to the sociological and historical “facts” of these events rather than seeing these revolutionary movements as monolithic. Students learn how to write about these nuances in meaningful ways.
