Course Description

In this class, we will ask what modernity is and how it was and is being created in Spain, from the 18th century to today. We will explore conceptions of otherness and resistance in relation to national identity, gender and sexuality, and the relationship between humans and their environment (urban/rural, created/natural). We will analyze changes relating to social and gender practices and institutions and read the evolution in both style and content encoded in the texts tracing the path through Modernity. Texts will range from the Enlightenment, through Romanticism and Naturalism, the end of Empire and the Spanish Civil War, Franco’s dictatorship, and Democracy and Globalization. We will read essays, poetry, and short and longform fiction. This is a discussion course based on daily reading assignments. The class carries CASE A & H credit.
