Expanded Course Description
This course will offer a critical overview of three of the most pivotal theoretical concepts within critical theory over the last forty years, including coloniality, subalternity, and decoloniality. It will provide students with the background, disciplinary stakes, and seminal readings in foundational theoretical debates over coloniality in recent Latin Americanist thought. Informed by readings in Latin American cultural studies, postcolonial studies, and subaltern studies, the course will offer not only a critical examination of still-pervasive categories like hybridity, border, and transculturation, but will also interrogate the continuing vitality of hegemony, colonial difference, and resistance as concepts to account for contemporary neoliberal conditions. Course requirements include weekly response assignments, active participation, individual presentations, and a final essay.
