Primary Instructor:

In this course, students will develop their Spanish conversational skills through the discussion of films from Latin America and Spain that treat the interrelated themes of social conflict and urban space. Oriented by cinematic portrayals of Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Santiago and Barcelona, our discussions will consider the relationship between two modern phenomena of seeing and being seen: cinema and the city.

Students will improve their Spanish speaking skills through active participation in class discussions, leading discussions, and reading and writing film reviews. Over the course of the semester, students will develop a critical vocabulary of cinematic terminology and technique, oral strategies of debate and persuasion, and a basic understanding of the socio-historical context surrounding the selected films.

This course counts as elective credit for the Spanish minor.
