HISPANIC CULTURES II (SP)
SPAN3350W001 3 points.
This course surveys cultural production of Spain and Spanish America from the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries. Students will acquire the knowledge needed for the study of the cultural manifestations of the Hispanic world in the context of modernity. Among the issues and events studied will be the Enlightenment as ideology and practice, the Napoleonic invasion of Spain, the wars of Spanish American independence, the fin-de-siecle and the cultural avant-gardes, the wars and revolutions of the twentieth century (Spanish Civil War, the Mexican and Cuban revolutions), neoliberalism, globalization, and the Hispanic presence in the United States. The goal of the course is to study some key moments of this trajectory through the analysis of representative texts, documents, and works of art. Class discussions will seek to situate the works studied within the political and cultural currents and debates of the time. All primary materials, class discussion, and assignments are in Spanish. This course is required for the major and the concentration in Hispanic Studies.

This course surveys cultural production of Spain and Spanish America from the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries. Students will acquire the knowledge needed for the study of the cultural manifestations of the Hispanic world in the context of modernity. Among the issues and events studied will be the Enlightenment as ideology and practice, the Napoleonic invasion of Spain, the wars of Spanish American independence, the fin-de-siecle and the cultural avant-gardes, the wars and revolutions of the twentieth century (Spanish Civil War, the Mexican and Cuban revolutions), neoliberalism, globalization, and the Hispanic presence in the United States. The goal of the course is to study some key moments of this trajectory through the analysis of representative texts, documents, and works of art. Class discussions will seek to situate the works studied within the political and cultural currents and debates of the time. All primary materials, class discussion, and assignments are in Spanish. This course is required for the major and the concentration in Hispanic Studies.

Crime and Culture in Modern Spain
SPAN3900X001 3 points.

The death of absolutist King Fernando VII in 1833 constituted the end of Spain’s Antiguo Régimen, and ushered in the arrival of a constitutional monarchy. The country soon furnished itself with the requisite trappings of modernity, including a liberal juridical system intended to turn subjects into citizens and replace the Black Legend of the obscurantist, Catholic empire with the image of a modern state organized around the rule of law. Inspired by a literature emerging in Europe and the United States as the symbolic counterpart of this turn to ideals of order and reason, Spanish writers tried their hand at appropriating its conventions throughout a century of domestic political turmoil stretching from the First and Second Republics (1868-74 and 1932-36) to the dictatorship of Francisco Franco (1939-75) and the transition to democracy soon after his death. In their own crime and detection novels, Spanish authors probed the contours of the nation’s uneven political and cultural evolution. Class readings and discussion are conducted in Spanish.
