Seminar in Golden-Age Literature: Contingent Ethnographies in Early Modern Spain

Marina S. Brownlee

Back to "Fall 2016" courses

The nature, definitions, and politics of ethnicity -and ethnography-in the history and fiction of Early Modern Spain reveal intricate and shifting parameters. A variety of texts from the Old World and the New, read in conjunction with such theorists as Agamben, Taussig and Ricoeur, and critics including González Echevarría, Mignolo and Pratt serve as the focus of discussions. Readings include works by Inca Garcilaso, Guamán Poma, Antonio de Guevara, Antonio de Torquemada, Miguel de Luna, Lope de Vega and Cervantes.
