Sensing Decolonial Aesthetics in Latin American Arts – The Florida Bookshelf
Email or Customer ID. The study of Latin America has a long and distinguished history in the department of Romance Studies, one that our faculty members maintain by constantly questioning and challenging its basic terms.
We approach Latin America, if we admittedly may never quite arrive there, in dialogue with other disciplines, beginning with literature and including history, philosophy, political theory, visual culture, performance studies, and mass culture. Equally diverse theoretical questions enliven our exchanges: how gender and sexuality are framed and lived, the political promise of decolonial thought, the nuances of history gleaned from fiction and poetry, the shape and sound of the trans-Atlantic sphere, the relationship between economies and expressive cultures, the historical and contemporary power of racial discourse and modes of surviving its violence, and the possibilities of artistic production beyond the logic of representation.
These interdisciplinary and theoretical pursuits shape our pedagogy as well. Recent graduate seminars include topics ranging from theories of visual culture to decolonial aesthetics, from literature and democracy in 19th Century Latin America to civilization and barbarism in recent Latin American literature, to current discursive and cultural constructs in the Hispanic Caribbean.
We welcome applications for PhD students interested in working in these areas, and encourage interested applicants to contact directly the faculty members most relevant to their research. The Department configures a different and multifaceted mapping of Latino and Latina social and national identities, cultures, and networks by promoting comparative and interdisciplinary trajectories that engage with these transnational communities hemispherically and transatlantically.
