Narrative Prose in Latin America - 19th Century Caribbean networks

Rachel L. Price

Course couples readings in network & systems theory with an examination of crucial networks defining the 19th century Caribbean and its literature: revolution, gossip, {masonería} and {Abakuá}, slavery and anti-slavery movements, romanticism and affect, burgeoning print culture and censorship. How do period genres feed & respond to such networks?.
