New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2020


SPAN 77.05 Advanced Writing with Federico García Lorca

This is a writing course, so expressing your ideas and thoughts in coherent and well-thought-out papers and essays is as important as discussing the topic of Lorca’s Theater. You will need to support your writing with evidence taken from the plays, the films, and the critical essays. You will be writing short and long responses and will make oral presentations. Peer review is an essential component of this course.

The purpose of this course is to engage in meaningful conversations with Lorca’s main topics in his theatrical plays. This is the first step to explore theatrical strategies and aesthetics techniques used by Lorca to convey meaning. We need to go beyond the simple description of a play’s plot in order to to focus on what the texts are telling us about the author’s literary universe and his contemporary society. We want to discover Lorca’s mythical universe and his critical take on Spain’s most traditional society. In this course, reading and expressing your ideas in writing are equality as important.

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.
