Students enrolled in SPN 358: The City of Borges will begin their studies at SJC in class meetings during the spring 2014, and complete them during two weeks at the Universidad de San Martín in Buenos Aires in June. In this course, we analyze the two forms in which we can interpret the idea of the city, or better yet, the cities of Jorge Luis Borges, through his gaze and that of other Argentine writers, filmmakers and intellectuals. On the one hand, the course examines texts by Borges and others, in which the theme is his neighborhood, Palermo and his city, Buenos Aires. On the other, it considers what Borges tells us about his “political” cities: Buenos Aires, Latin America and the world. Conducted in Spanish. Faculty Leaders: Dr. Antoinette Hertel and Dr. Martín Plot (U San Martín). For more information, click here.
