En este taller de primavera del Centro de Artes Liberales vamos a examinar distintos conceptos de lo global en el contexto de las literaturas del mundo hispánico.  Veremos cómo los autores modernos de América Latina y España leen y escriben en un contexto global, y consideraremos preguntas como ¿Qué perdemos o ganamos al considerar a estos autores como “globales”? y ¿Hasta qué punto deben influir las teorías de la globalidad en la enseñaza del español hoy?.  Estudiaremos obras de escritores españoles y latinoamericanos además del papel que juega la traducción.  Presentarán Gustavo Pellón y otros profesores de la Universidad de Virginia y Kit Decker del Piedmont Virginia Community College.

In this spring’s workshop of the Center for the Liberal Arts we will examine different concepts of the global in the context of the literatures of the Spanish-speaking world.  We will see how modern authors in Latin America and Spain read and write in a global context and discuss questions such as What is important—what is gained and lost—by thinking of such authors as “global”? and How should theories of the global influence Spanish instruction today?  We will study the works of Spanish and Latin American authors, as well as the role of translations. There will be presentations by Gustavo Pellón and other professors from the University of Virginia and Kit Decker of Piedmont Virginia Community College.
