This is an interdisciplinary module, which explores representations of the urban in twentieth-century Argentina. It focuses on poetic, novelistic, cinematic and artistic accounts of the city of Buenos Aires from the 1920s to the present day. In particular, it examines overlapping techniques and methods, and semantic and conceptual concurrences in mapping the urban in different cultural disciplines. The module involves a close study of the work of internationally acclaimed figures of Argentine culture and engages with theoretical issues related to space, time, identity and the dialectic of art (in its broader sense) and society.
Pre-requisite(s): Before taking this module you must pass SP2002 or pass SP2004
