HISP 228 - Modern Spain

1 unit(s)

Studies in Spanish literary and cultural production from the beginning of the Bourbon monarchy to the present.

Road Trips. The course introduces a wide range of literary expression (novel, essay, travelogue, poetry, drama) from the thwarted Spanish Age of Enlightenment in the eighteenth century to the present-day Spain of revived regionalism and massive immigration, by way of the geographical imagination. Texts under study offer close observation of the particularities of landscapes and cityscapes and their implications for the local and national imaginary, collective memory and both religion and politics in modern Spain. Much attention is devoted to questions about insider and outsider perspectives and the vicissitudes of dialogue between them. Andrew Bush.
