This course explores the many borders (gender, language, class, race, etc.) Latina writers cross as they negotiate what it means to be both Hispanic and U.S. American without really belonging anywhere. Students will read a wide variety of texts in Spanish and English, ranging from novels and essays to memoirs and graphic novels. The course is conducted in Spanish with English used whenever applicable. Prerequisites: SPA-306, placement at the 300-level, or special permission from the instructor.
