Caribbean Borders:Literature & Identity in the Hispanic Caribbean

Designed for pre- and in-service teachers of Spanish, this course examines cultural production and social development in the Hispanic Caribbean. We begin with the cultural dilemma and social implications posed by the "narrative" of Western colonization in the Caribbean, to then survey the major consequences, processes, and repetitive patterns impacting the region. Out main goal will be to historicize and interrogate the creation of a Caribbean cultural discourse. This course will prepare teachers to develop connections between course content and the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Foreign Languages and the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning.
