T1 Narrating modernity writers of the mid-20th century A1 Domínguez Reboiras, Fernando., García, Pablo., O'Donnell, Camila., Hopenhayn, Silvia., Añón, Valeria., Scherer, Chris., Leonard, Lisa., Richards, Tom., Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm), Tranquilo Factoría Audiovisual (Firm), Tranquilo Producciones., PB Films for the Humanities & Sciences PP Princeton, NJ YR 2008 AB The mid-20th century changed the face of Latin American life and art. This program demonstrates how the rise of military dictatorships forced a reassessment of issues that had been problematic since Latin American countries gained their independence. These dilemmas energized the work of Jorge Luis Borges, Octavio Paz, Pablo Neruda, Roberto Arit, César Vallejo, Alejo Carpentier, Silvina Ocampo, and Juan Carlos Onetti. The significance of the Río de la Plata region and Ángel Rama's concept of narrative transculturation also inform the discussion.
