For that class I will do this and add more. http://www.columbia.edu/cu/spanish/courses/spanish3330/programa.html (Or perhaps not do that, if I have enough other material that I think the students can really handle.)
I will use some of those documentaries we bought, put in the library, and forgot.
We will read O’Gorman forward, Dussell, Mignolo, and so on.
Also Martí, Ortiz, and so on. (Shall I start earlier than Martí with foundational essays?)
And I will concentrate on that avant-garde period and antecendents and aftermath.
And we will have Vasconcelos, Anzaldúa, and the Plan Espiritual de Aztlán.
Day 1: introduction, the Hispanic “race,” discussion of race, “por la raza hablará el espíritu,” “día de la raza”
Day 2: Hispanic: language and religion, grammar, el impacto de la letra: Piedra
Day 3: [Rama, oder nicht?]
To be continued. Should we read the Reino de este mundo? Probably. We could have both it AND the Ríos profundos. Ríos profundos is literally about being forced into Hispanism.
Mariátegui, and this for indigenismo.
