HISP 355 - NewWorld Exploration of Nature
This course introduces students to the study of Early Modern Spanish texts focused on explorations of New World nature and landscapes. The goal of this course is to better understand how these Early Modern texts intersect with natives culture(s) and provide a perception of nature as both a physical and cultural entity. Close readings of texts will improve students’ ability to understand primary sources, while digital resources and tools (text encoding, mapping, virtual reality) will provide a Digital Humanities scholarly approach. Taught in Spanish.
