3.00 Cr
This course serves as a bridge between the Acquisition of Spanish courses (I-IV) and upper-division Spanish courses. This course is an introduction to the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world of the Iberian Peninsula and the Americas. Students learn about the key events and the fundamental ideas and themes running through the cultures of Spain and Latin America across the centuries as well as introductory literary selections representative of the different periods. Class discussions focus on processes of conquest and colonialism, nation formation, modernization, and on the changing roles of religion, race and gender. Through discussions, presentations, written response papers and exams, students learn to critically read and understand Spanish-speaking cultures, and to develop original arguments.
