New Course Supplement 2016


SPAN 40.08 Tell Me a Story! The Modern Spanish Short Story

This course will explore the cultural, social, economic, and political history of modern Spain from 1700 to the present through a selection of Spanish short stories. We will examine how literature shapes everyday life and how short narratives play a central role in the configuration of a society. Through the lens of this genre students will acquire a panoramic and comprehensive view of Spanish socio-cultural issues that will include, among others, war, violence and power, memory, collective identity, citizenship, sexual identity, utopia, and the struggle for modernity. In-depth analysis of short stories by Samaniego, Bécquer, Alas Clarín, Fernán Caballero, Pardo Bazán, Valle-Inclán, Salinas, Mateo Díez, Tusquets and Benet, among others.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
