This course proposes a study of the fundamental concepts of Modernity (subject, state, nation, rights) as they were discussed in Spain since the last decades of the 18th Century to the first decades of the 20th Century. We will trace Spain’s struggle for Modernity by studying historical events and intellectual movements such as Enlightenment, Absolutism, Liberalism, Romanticism, Naturalism, Realism, Dictatorship or Regeneracionismo, and we will do so by comparing Spanish authors (Goya, Blanco-White, Donoso Cortés or Pi i Margall) to other European thinkers (Voltaire, Kant, Marx or Foucault). Our comparative approach will also consider texts of other Iberian nations and regions such as Portugal, Galiza, Euskadi and Catalunya.

This course counts as literature credit for the Spanish minor.
