Primary Instructor:


From the 1980s to the present the arrival and establishment of large communities of immigrants of North African, Latin American, and Northern European origin has transformed the Spanish geopolitical and cultural map forever. In this class, we will examine film and some literature as a means to analyze the historical construction of Spanish national identity along with its radical renegotiation in the present. We will read works (mostly short stories) by contemporary authors such as Lourdes Ortiz, José María Merino (among others), and view films by Icíar Bollaín, Chus Gutiérrez, Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón and Carlos Saura. We will also read some of the most important cultural and political thinkers working on questions of migration, race and identity.
