Learning objectives
The workshop offers the initiation of innovative principles in the study of Hispanic American literature related to human rights. The aim is for the student to critically acquire the main historical, cultural and literary issues of the contexts under study, and to arrive at a non-traditional overview of practices and devices of articulation of political and social violence, with particular interest in Hispanic American contexts.
Expected learning outcomes
The expected results in terms of knowledge and understanding are aimed at developing skills in the analysis of contemporary Hispanic American texts and contexts, with particular attention to literary phenomena that intertwine the aesthetic and political dimensions. The student will also develop critical skills in the evaluation of traditional methodologies, problem solving skills and creative propositivity.
The expected results in terms of applied skills are the ability to integrate the hermeneutical key of human rights to the analysis of the problems and themes of Hispanic literature.

Lesson period
Second semester
During the emergency teaching phase, the programme is maintained with the following modifications necessary for a good online use of the course originally designed for in-presence teaching:
The lessons will be held mainly by videoconference using the Zoom or Teams platform, in which group activities will also be proposed. For students who will not take part in group activities, alternative online exercises will be arranged through the Classroom platform, which will also be used for the exchange of materials and exercises.
The lesson calendar and all the details of the activities will be published on Ariel by the beginning of the lessons.
Course syllabus
THE INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE SECOND SEMESTER, IN COLLABORATION WITH THE LECTURERS AND STUDENTS OF THE USACH IDEA AND THE UNIVERSIDAD AUTÓNOMA DE CHILE

FREQUENCY IS REQUIRED (meetings in PRESENCE MODE - if the health condition makes it possible - and ONLINE meetings will alternate)

Given the collaborative approach to teaching, the work program and the materials in use will be agreed with the students, through a shared conceptual map, only after the construction of the class group and individual teams.
Prerequisites for admission
The Laboratory is conducted entirely in Spanish, the materials and bibliography presuppose solid linguistic and literary skills. Students of other Degree Courses who do not know Spanish or are beginners will not always be able to rely on translations into Italian; therefore, if interested in the Laboratory, they will have to contact the teacher in advance to evaluate possible adaptations of the program. Erasmus students or other forms of mobility are admitted, provided they have solid linguistic and literary skills in the areas of reference.
Teaching methods
The workshop adopts the following teaching methods: joint seminar lessons. The students attending, coordinated by tutors, will set up working groups with foreign colleagues in order to produce texts and posters that will be evaluated in itinere by the teachers. In addition to the classroom lessons, there will also be co-presence sessions (joint class) via Zoom or Teams, for which a particular flexibility of schedule is required.
Teaching Resources
Given the collaborative approach to teaching, the work program and the materials in use will be agreed with the students, through a shared conceptual map, only after the construction of the class group and individual teams.
Assessment methods and Criteria
Due to its curricular nature, the Laboratory provides assistance at all meetings and the realization of a final work (without vote and with the attribution of 3 cfu).
