Class Notes

Ecuador travel course. Application and $500 deposit due by April 1, see https://rce.csuchico.edu/passport for details. This course will present a comparative, inter-American overview of indigenous literature, drawing on texts from both Latin America and the United States. We will pay particular attention to local connections between Northern California and Ecuador as an opportunity to reflect on differences and similarities between these two contexts. Our course readings and discussions will provide a historical overview of key issues from the colonial period to the present. Authors and texts include Bartolome de las Casas, Rigoberta Menchu, Maria Clara Sharupi, Deborah Miranda, indigenous hip-hop artists, the Popol Wuj, the film Even the Rain, and Sing: Poetry from the Indigenous Americas. The course may also feature visits by local indigenous authors, depending on scheduling and availability. A bulk of the grades will rest on developing students? capacity as travel writers by having them engage in an online travel blog documenting their time in Ecuador and connecting their readings for this course with programmed excursions. Requires additional enrollment in LAST 357 or LAST 398.
