31. SPAN 045/045W: Hispanic Cultures (in English)

Contact:Barbara Simerka
Abstract:The role of a liberal arts education in shaping societal values has been a key
battleground in the US culture wars of the past two decades. Influenced by the
anti-colonial, anti-war and civil rights movements, many liberal arts
disciplines have reshaped their fields of study. Three of the most prominent
developments have been a reconsideration of the definitions and uses of truth
in the humanities and social sciences, an emphasis on the ideological
implications of studying cultures and values, and the inclusion of the voices
and perspectives of many previously marginalized social groups. This course
will employ the new model of cultural studies as it introduces students to the
cultures of the Spanish -speaking world. Students will read and view texts
from a wide variety of primary and secondary texts (literature, social
sciences, painting, films, historiography, cultural theory) in order to
explore the ways that Spain and Latin American countries have created myths of
origin and have defined their national and ethnic identities at key moments of
cultural transition.
