Growing up isn’t easy. It is, however, an ideal narrative vehicle for engaging broader themes like gender, sexuality, violence, cultural norms, and political activism in a way that is both personal and universal. In this seminar, students will explore the trials, tribulations, and awakenings involved in coming of age through direct encounters with canonical and contemporary literature and film from Latin America. These works will be considered in the context of the specific aesthetic traditions and historical moments to which they belong.
