Course Description

Prerequisite:  HISP-S 328 or Consent of the Department

In this course we will discuss the city as an urban metaphor, from the small rural town to the provincial city to the cosmopolitan capital. We will consider the different cultural, social, political, and literary aspects of the city as a text. An array of literary novels and films will help us to map the recent history and transformation of Spain from the Civil War through Franco’s dictatorship to the postmodern Spain of the European Union. We will explore issues of national identity, power, gender identity, consumerism and historical memory.

The course will be conducted entirely in Spanish. Class presentations, discussion, and written work must be in Spanish. Knowledge of the Spanish language is expected and it will influence the grade.
The above course carries CASE AH Breadth of Inquiry credit and CASE GCC2, Global Civilization & Culture 2 credit.
