The Animal Within: Animal Presence in Latin American Narrative

Subject Code: 
ILAC
Course Number: 
133N
Description: 

How does the criterion for the division between the human and the animal take part on contemporary Latin American narrative? To what extent is this divide challenged or contested? The course combines a discussion of the literary works of authors like Jorge Luis Borges, Horacio Quiroga, Julio Cortázar, Mario Bellatin, Clarice Lispector, and José María Arguedas with a reflection on the animal and animality in the writings of Bataille, Derrida and Deleuze. Taught in English.

Se analizará el papel jugado por las llamadas “inteligencias secretas” y el sistema de obtención, comunicación, protección y uso efectivo bajo las estructuras de gobierno de la Monarquía Hispánica de los siglos XVI y XVII, especialmente en momentos conflictivos de la Historia de la Península Ibérica como fueron las revueltas de Cataluña y Portugal (1640). Información secreta, espionaje y contrainteligencia fueron campos de acción donde los recursos secretos del Estado Moderno de los Habsburgo se desplegaron de forma inequívoca.
