SPAN 060. Memoria e identidad
This course will focus on memory making as an identity building agent. We will study literary texts, films and other cultural artifacts to commemorate the silenced voices of the past. The work of several Spanish authors, film directors and intellectuals of the last decades, who try to recover the silenced voices of the past in an effort to contest the "rhetoric of amnesia", so persistent in the early transition to democracy in Spain, will be studied through close readings and a theoretical component. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of memory in literary, film and cultural narratives to build national identity.
