SPA 403 Spanish Studies in Spanish American Literary Genres
This course examines a cultural theme or the development of a specific literary genre: novel, poetry, drama, or essay.

Students will develop the analytical tools and language specific to the interpretation of a particular genre and demonstrate those skills in interpretative essays and class discussion. One-half or one course credit. Taught in the spring semester 2007-2008 and in alternate years.
