"Carne" mistranslates as "meat," "Körper," or "chair." Does the word codify into language a certain culturally specific experience of the body and its mediation with nature? In which ways does "flesh" subordinate nonhumans? How does the theme of meat articulate natural and political histories? This advanced research seminar tackles these questions across Latin American corpora: Piñera, Eltit, Echeverría, Bolaño, Bombal, and Lispector. Theorists include: Singer, Santner, and Ortiz. Culturalist, new materialist debates on cattle and corpses. This course will be taught in Spanish.
