SPAN3621 - Latin American Film and Literature

Semester 1, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Vek Lewis


In this unit (taught in Spanish) students are exposed to a range of literary and filmic works from Latin America. The unit examines how these two modes of cultural production have interacted and reshaped one another. Literary narratives have changed formally, stylistically and thematically due to the influence of several genres of Mexican, Brazilian and Argentinean cinema, as well as those of Hollywood and European cinema. The unit provides grounding in literary and film theory and familiarises students with debates around industry, audience reception and reading codes.
