SPAN 4620 - [Hispanic Caribbean Rhythms and Aesthetics]

Spring. Not offered 2017-2018. 4 credits. Student option grading.

S. McDaniel.

How does Hispanic Caribbean music - such as son, merengue, and reggaetón - dialogue with literature in Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and New York?  This course is divided into five sections: (a) Afro-Antillean poetics (such as Nicolás Guillén’s Motivos de son and Sóngoro cosongo): (b) Cuban neo-Baroque aesthetics (Severo Sarduy); (c) coloniality and cultural consumption.  (Luis Rafael Sánchez’s La guaraqcha del Macho Camacho); (d) queer Caribbean diasporas (Manuel Ramos Otero and Mayra Santos-Febres); and (e) soundtracks of Caribbean urbanity in Havana and Santo Domingo (Pedro Juan Gutiérrez and Rita Indiana).
