Course Description

How have 20th and early 21st century Spanish writers and film makers responded to the tumultuous political and social upheavals of their times? More specifically, how does their work convey an understanding of national identity? For some, this involved looking to the historical past. For others, the lens has been gender and, more recently, ethnicity, brought on by the large influx of immigrants to Spain. Readings may include works by Miguel de Unamuno, Dulce Chacón, Antonio Muñoz Molina, and Lourdes Ortiz. Films by Pedro Almodóvar, Icíar Bollaín. Conducted in Spanish.
