Foreign Language, Literature & Culture

(LAIS core course) This course provides an introduction to Spanish literature through a variety of genres including poetry, short stories, novels, dramas, and essays.  We will begin in the 11th century when the first literary texts in Spanish were written, and continue through to the twentieth century.  Special attention will focus on the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, an especially rich period of literary production in Spain.  Discussions will take into account the historical and cultural contexts in which these texts were produced in order to provide students with a greater understanding of Spanish culture.  We will also explore other artistic contributions to this culture from the fields of music, painting, and sculpture.  Students will read texts in the original with special attention given to close readings.  Conducted in Spanish.
