Portugal Meets the "Other":Portuguese Sailors in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia (15th-17thCent)

  • Days: MWF
  • Meeting Time: 02:20 pm-03:20 pm
  • Room: OLRI 370
  • Instructor: J. Ernesto Ortiz Diaz

Notes: In this course we will read travel accounts and official historiography from the period in which Portugal became the first European overseas empire. Portugal linked continents and cultures as never before traveling by sea; indeed this process can be understood as the first globalization because of the cultural cross-pollination that Portugal’s voyages provoked. We will focus on analyzing the way in which the Portuguese managed to portray the Other by two contrary discourses: Portugal’s providential mission, and the race for economical profit through trade and war. We will also study works of art produced in this era. The course will be taught in Spanish, but students may choose to submit their work in Portuguese. This course counts toward the African Studies concentration.

Notes: *First Year Course only; cross-listed with LATI 171-01* 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.

This course is conducted in English.

The goals of the First Year Course are the following:

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

•To provide some instruction in college level writing (including multiple drafts and appropriate citation of source materials) and library skills.

•To help students adjust to Macalester's academic life.

  • Days: MWF
  • Meeting Time: 09:40 am-10:40 am
  • Room: NEILL 216
  • Instructor: Rebecca Church

Notes: *Cross-listed with CLAS 294-01 and HIST 294-03* Throughout the Middle Ages, as Christianity and Islam dominated parts of the Iberian peninsula, from the 8th to the 15th century, convivencia and conflict existed side by side. Where did people practice tolerance, and how and why? Where did they fight and why? How did the Jewish population fit in on either side? What life look like on the ground, in the narrow city streets, the gardens, the villages of al-Andalus and the Christian kingdoms? How did Iberia relate to the wider worlds of North Africa, France, and the Mediterranean? We'll use poetry, charters, and chronicles to explore how complex identities, cooperation, and, also, violence created porous borders along shifting frontiers.

Journeys Through Brazil

  • Days: MWF
  • Meeting Time: 02:20 pm-03:20 pm

  • Instructor: J. Ernesto Ortiz Diaz

Notes: This intermediate course in Portuguese focuses on the civilization and cultures of Brazil.

In this class we will explore the socio-historical, political and cultural trajectory Brazil has undertaken while, at the same time, reflecting on how ideas such as nation, identity, race, ethnicity, and class have transformed the face of the country. We will use a wide array of texts and materials –literature, music, painting, sculpture, architecture, dance, and cinema– to gain a broad and critical understanding of the Brazilian universe. Join us on these journeys of discovery! This course will be taught in Portuguese.

Cultural Resistance/Survival: Indigenous and African Peoples in Early Spanish America

  • Days: MWF
  • Meeting Time: 02:20 pm-03:20 pm
  • Room: NEILL 402
  • Instructor: Margaret Olsen

Notes: *Cross-listed with INTL 415-01 and LATI 415-01*

In the Old World, Spain defined its national identity by locating its "others" in Jews, conversos, Muslims, moriscos, Turks, gypsies, pirates and Protestants. In the New World, Spaniards employed many of the same discursive and legal tactics - along with brute force - to subject Amerindian and African peoples to their will and their cultural norms. But indigenous and African populations in the Americas actively countered colonization. They rejected slavery and cultural imposition through physical rebellion, the use of strategies of cultural preservation and the appropriation of phonetic writing, which they in turn wielded against European hegemony. We will examine a fascinating corpus of indigenous pictographic codexes, architecture, myths, and histories and letters of resistance, along with a rich spectrum of texts in which peoples of African descent affirm their own subjectivity in opposition to slavery and cultural violence. What will emerge for students is a complex, heterogeneous vision of the conquest and early colonization in which non-European voices speak loudly on their own behalf.

  • Instructor: Alicia Munoz

Notes: *Cross-listed with AMST 445-01 and LATI 445-01; first day attendance required*

The border region between the United States and Mexico exists as both a physical space and an ideological construct. This seminar uses literary and filmic narratives to explore issues of identity, opportunity, and violence that arise from this contested space. How does the border shape individual and cultural identities? In what ways does the border create opportunities for both advancement and exploitation? How do these works engage conflicts and tensions of race, nationalism, gender, and power? The course will include writers and filmmakers from both countries, and we will read original texts both in Spanish and English. Cross-listed with American Studies 445 and Latin American Studies 445.

Mapping the New World: Explorations, Encounters, and Disasters

  • Meeting Time: 01:20 pm-02:50 pm
  • Room:
  • Instructor: Margaret Olsen

Notes: *Cross-listed with LATI 316-01 and INTL 316-01*

Europeans were by no means the first peoples to explore new territories and human populations. Renaissance scientific methodology, however, led European travelers to meticulously document each New World encounter in writing and develop new tools with which to navigate and represent space, devices that subsequently became weapons of colonial domination. But as Nature and indigenous populations refused to be subjected to European epistemology, failure and disaster were frequent events: shipwrecks left Old World survivors stranded among unknown lands and peoples in the Americas; Amerindians rejected the imposition of a foreign culture and religion, murdering colonists and missionaries; Africans rebelled against slavery and escaped to mountains and jungles to form autonomous communities. An examination of maps, exploration logs, missionary histories, travel literature, historiography and colonial documents will provide the foundation for this course on the ambivalent reality of the Old World's encounter with the Americas, in which Europeans were often the losers. This course satisfies the Area 1 requirement for the Hispanic & Latin American Studies major. Cross-listed with Latin American Studies 316 and International Studies 316. (4 credits)
