SPAN 77.04 The Present that Was: Newspapers and the Modern Public Sphere in Spain

In the Iberian Peninsula, there is a long and complex literary tradition of newspaper writers. Many of these authors originally published their most successful and influential pieces in periodicals, journals, and magazines. This course has two main objectives. On one hand, we will try to understand the specificities of a medium (the press) that, due its inherent immediacy and futility, has also produced a series of sub-genres and styles. On the other hand, we will sketch out a map of those cultural and political problems that very influential intellectuals and columnists have recurrently been dealing with for two centuries. This conceptual map will also help us understand how the public sphere has evolved in modern Spain. Azorín, Estébanez Calderón, Foxá, González Ruano, Larra, Mesonero Romanos, Ortega y Gasset, Ortega y Gasset, Savater, Pla, Unamuno, Umbral.

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.
