Course Description

This course offers an introduction to the cultural history of Spain and Spanish America, focusing on key moments of cultural conflict, negotiation, and exchange. It traces the formation of cultural practices in Spain and Spanish America from ancient times through the twenty-first century with a special emphasis on visual culture, and it offers students a comprehensive view of some of the major figures that have left a mark in Hispanic cultures. Students learn about key events and important ideas and concerns that have shaped Hispanic cultures across the centuries, such as processes of empire formation, conquest and colonialism, postcolonial nation building, revolutionary processes, and the changing roles of religion, race, and gender. Through discussions, written compositions and short exams, students learn to critically read and understand the complexity of what is generally known as Hispanic cultures, and to develop original arguments in written and spoken Spanish. The class is entirely conducted in Spanish.

This course carries CASE AH Breadth of Inquiry and CASE GCC2  Global Civilization & Culture 2 distribution credit.
