Instructor: Elena Olive
Description: This course offers an interactive learning experience in which students will explore Spain’s rich variety in traditions, history, language, art, food, and music. While propagation of Spanish cultural identity during Francisco Franco’s dictatorship was reduced to images of bullfights, flamenco dancers, and sunny beaches, in this class we will examine the true range of cultural diversity that has flourished in the country’s various autonomous regions since the onset of democracy in the early 1980s. In class students will explore and discuss the impact of cultural trends, as well as political and historical events that have affected Spanish culture throughout time. Students will also engage in hands-on activities as we investigate and explore various cultural traditions from each assigned region.
