SPAN 012. Imágenes y contextos hispánicos

This course provides an introduction to the Hispanic world with an emphasis on its visual culture. The goal is to understand the key cultural processes that have shaped Latin America and Spain. We will begin by examining early contact between Europeans and Amerindian civilizations. We will analyze how the history of the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim traditions in Spain had a great impact on how the Spanish colonial empire developed in the New World. We will then study the nation-building processes of the nineteenth century in Latin America, and continue on to more recent topics, such as the periods of war and postwar in Spain and some Latin American countries.
Students will develop advanced skills in written Spanish by completing several written assignments over the course of the semester.
