EL CURSO La geografía espiritual de América exhibe una densidad rica y profunda, extraordinaria tanto por la variedad de sus componentes originales cuanto por los resultados de su fusión. Es por ello que, si hubiese que destacar apenas uno entre los múltiples rasgos de tal perfil éste debería ser, sin duda, el mestizaje: mestizaje de razas, de lenguas, de mitologías; mestizaje de religiones, filosofías, sistemas políticos, prácticas económicas, órdenes sociales; mestizaje de saberes científicos y esotéricos, tecnologías, gastronomías, artes y letras, arquitecturas. Mestizaje de Culturas. Este es un curso de introducción al arte y la arquitectura, diseñado especialmente para estudiantes de otras áreas académicas por lo que no es necesario tener conocimientos previos en el tema. En cada clase trataremos de aprender a “leer” las obras y poder comprender mediante el análisis que hay detrás de lo que vemos: cómo se generó la obra, en que contexto fue pensada, qué ideas representa, cuál es la historia personal de su autor y mucho más. Tendremos una clase semanal de 3 horas, dividida en dos partes (con un coffee break de 15 minutos). Durante el semestre realizaremos 2 visitas a museos, en el horario de clase. El sistema de evaluación está estructurado en 2 exámenes parciales (multiple choice) y un ensayo final que los estudiantes realizaran en las últimas dos semanas del curso. PROGRAMA 1. Las Culturas Precolombinas en Mesoamérica: Olmeca, Teotihuacán, Zapoteca, Mixteca, Maya, Tolteca, Azteca. 2.

Estos son la teoría de la modernización, el neo-institucionalismo, el enfoque de los clivajes y la teoría de la acción colectiva. El programa se organiza en torno a tres módulos principales: a) El reencuentro de América Latina con la democracia b) La aparición de nuevas formas de inestabilidad política diferentes al golpismo tradicional y vinculados en casos como Argentina a fenómenos de colapso económico. c) El resurgimiento de un nuevo populismo con manifestaciones paradigmáticas como la de Hugo Chávez. Tres reencuentros paradojales con la democracia, con la inestabilidad y con el populismo.

Course Studies in Argentina 2017. Descripción del curso: El seminario consiste en la lectura crítica y el análisis temático y formal de los cuentos latinoamericanos que mejor representan la diversidad del género en los siglos XIX, XX y XXI. Por un lado, exploraremos el cuento como género literario dentro de Latinoamérica a través de la teoría, las técnicas y la producción de los llamados “grandes maestros del cuento” –Quiroga, Cortázar, Borges, Rulfo, Donoso y García Márquez. Por otro lado, analizaremos el cuento en relación directa con la tradición literaria, el contexto social, el momento histórico y la búsqueda literaria específica de cada autor y movimiento. Prestaremos especial atención, aunque no exclusivamente, a los escritores del barroco y el neobarroco cubano –Alejo Carpentier, José Lezama Lima, Reinaldo Arenas y Virgilio Piñera- por ser esta generación un punto de inflexión en la literatura latinoamericana en general. Además, dedicaremos la última parte del curso al estudio de cuentos escritos por mujeres –Luisa Valenzuela, Cristina Peri Rossi y Zoé Valdés, entre otras– para evaluar el concepto de identidad –individual y social– y sus múltiples máscaras. Los cuentos serán abordados desde una perspectiva histórico-social, estética y teórica –aspectos estructurales, técnicos, literarios y estilísticos. A su vez, en algunos casos específicos, analizaremos la adaptación del texto a la pantalla para abrir así un diálogo entre literatura y cine. Objetivos: El objetivo principal de este curso es darles a los estudiantes la base social, el marco histórico y el movimiento estético relevantes para la lectura crítica de los textos. Además de entrenarlos en las técnicas del análisis textual, el seminario busca incentivar la producción de opiniones y comentarios personales para el desarrollo de un pensamiento crítico. Componentes de la nota final: Asistencia y participación en clase 35% Presentación oral y liderazgo 20% Trabajo creativo (escritura y comentario) 10% Examen final 35% Clases: Las clases tendrán un enfoque teórico-práctico. En ellas, se discutirán perspectivas críticas, teóricas y analíticas de los cuentos, las películas y los temas asignados. El estudiante encargado de la presentación oral del día será responsable de la introducción socio-histórica/estética del tema/autor en cuestión y de dirigir el intercambio de ideas. La discusión y el análisis de los cuentos y artículos leídos, y de las películas vistas de tares o en clase, tendrán diferentes formatos: charlas, debates, cuestionarios, guías de lectura y producción, ejercicios de aplicación, etc. Lo fundamental para el éxito de las clases es la interacción grupal, basada en los aportes individuales de los estudiantes, quienes deberán leer el material ANTES de venir a clase para poder incorporar ideas, opiniones, puntos de vista y comentarios que enriquezcan la lectura y el análisis en cada caso. La metodología será interactiva, comunicativa, comprensiva y crítica, de manera de facilitar, principalmente, la participación activa del estudiante. Docente: Prof. Clara M. Albertengo, PhD [-]
