Course Description

Prerequisite:  HISP-S 324 or HISP-S 328 or Consent of the Department

This service-learning culture course will focus on Mexican cultural traditions and study how they have been affected by the evolution of regional, national and global identities. We will examine a broad range of visual arts (murals, film, etc.), performing arts (dance, music, etc.), and ritual festival traditions as we study continuities and changes in cultural production in contemporary Mexico. We will employ two pedagogical approaches. First, students will master traditional academic readings, develop written compositions and participate in classroom discussion. Second, they will develop and present innovative, interactive methods to teach cultural understanding to children in Bloomington community-based classroom settings. The course will be taught entirely in Spanish and Spanish will also be the target language used in the community partner setting. 

This course carries CASE GCC2  Global Civilization & Culture 2 distribution credit.
