HISP 171-01  Susurros del Pasado: Whispers Toward the 21st Century
MWF 12:00 pm-01:00 pm NEILL 213 Galo Gonzalez
*First Year Course only; cross-listed with LATI 171-01; first day attendance required* The course “Susurros del Pasado: Whispers toward the 21st Century” will explore the definition of “Indigenous peoples” and its implication within the context of the Americas, and provide a forum for discussion of the suffering, oppression and discrimination experienced by this particular population. The course will also outline continuing struggle for freedom, for cultural and even their physical survival, by examining specific literature and cultural production authored by 20th and 21st century indigenous and non-indigenous authors from North, Central and South America. The chosen literature and cultural texts will illustrate trans-cultural and de-colonization processes, and resistance to assimilation.

The following authors and films will be the source of our readings and class discussion: Sherman Alexie (The Toughest Indian in the World, 2000), Jose Maria Arguedas (Yawar Fiesta, 1941), Victor Montejo (Testimony: Death of a Guatemalan Village, 1987; and Sculpted Stones, 1995), Rigoberta Menchú (I Rogoberta Menchú. An Indian Woman in Guatemala, 1983), and Subcomandante Marcos (Questions And Swords. Folktales of the Zapatista Revolution, 2001); among the films, "Spirit: The Seventh Fire (2005)," "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (2007)," "Cabeza de Vaca (1993)," "The Mission (1986)," and "A Place Called Chiapas (1998)." Students will also read and discuss theories proposed by Erica-Irene Daes (United Nations Human Rights Prize 1993), Ronald Niezen, Walter Mignolo, Jeffrey Sissons, among others. This course fulfills the WA (Argumentative Writing) requirement. Students will have the opportunity to learn how to construct a solid argumentative assay. They will receive instruction on the various steps of the processes of writing and revising an essay. Through the use of a variety of resources, students will practice methods of selecting themes, setting up solid arguments based on solid evidence, and reaching relevant conclusions in relation to the argumentative intention of the essay.

• To introduce students to critical inquiry in the field of Hispanic and Latin American Studies.

Like all FYCs, the course will focus on academic reading and writing skills and will help students develop critical thinking skills, specifically in the humanities.
