SPAN 011. Culturas de España

Embark on a cultural journey through Spain! Focusing primarily on transcultural and interdisciplinary perspectives, we will explore topics pertaining to all periods of Spanish history, society, culture, literature, politics, art, music, and film. We will devote special attention to contemporary Spanish film and current events. We will study these aspects in relation to different regions (Cataluña, Andalucía, Galicia, País Vasco, and Castilla) and particular cities (Madrid, Barcelona, and Sevilla). We will examine how the medieval concept of Spain ("las Españas") may still apply today with respect to the linguistic, cultural, ethnic, social, and political diversity within the Iberian Peninsula. Other topics for exploration include migration and the emergence of hybrid identities, including those pertaining to culture, gender, and sexuality. Students will develop advanced skills in speaking, writing, and reading in Spanish.
