A panoramic course on contemporary Spain studied through film and fiction (in English).

Through the lens of cultural studies the course strives to present Spanish identity in its complexity, including a repertoire of themes related to history, and regionalism. Particularly the course explores ‘narratives’ related to: environmental crisis, regional schisms, historical memory, gender diversity, immigration, religion, and racial/ethnic conflict. Assignments include written critical commentaries, project-based assignments, and active oral participation. This course is in English.
