The principal aim of both the topics and non-topics courses is to acquire a more profound understanding of the history, politics, society, culture, customs, and literature of the Hispanic world through listening, writing, reading, and speaking activities in Spanish. At the same time, students develop the language tools, both grammatical functions and vocabulary, necessary to discuss issues of relevance to Hispanic culture and to analyze these situations while expressing their own personal opinions, reactions, conclusions, and possible outcomes to hypothetical situations. Therefore, the practice and application of grammatical features and vocabulary are integrated into the content of the course, and students are expected to formally study and practice these structures individually through the explanations provided in the textbook and the practice activities assigned as homework. Materials include newspaper articles, cultural readings, videos, short lectures, listening comprehension activities, and computer materials.

Work requirements/evaluation criteria for non-topics sections: Regular attendance crucial. Participation in class includes asking and answering questions, initiating discussion, role playing, and other situational activities. Grade based on oral participation, homework assignments, in-class work, compositions, exams, and a final written and oral exam.

TEXTS for non-topics sections:

The principal aim of both the topics and non-topics courses is to acquire a more profound understanding of the history, politics, society, culture, customs, and literature of the Hispanic world through listening, writing, reading, and speaking activities in Spanish. At the same time, students develop the language tools, both grammatical functions and vocabulary, necessary to discuss issues of relevance to Hispanic culture and to analyze these situations while expressing their own personal opinions, reactions, conclusions, and possible outcomes to hypothetical situations. Therefore, the practice and application of grammatical features and vocabulary are integrated into the content of the course, and students are expected to formally study and practice these structures individually through the explanations provided in the textbook and the practice activities assigned as homework. Materials include newspaper articles, cultural readings, videos, short lectures, listening comprehension activities, and computer materials.

Work requirements/evaluation criteria for non-topics sections: Regular attendance crucial. Participation in class includes asking and answering questions, initiating discussion, role playing, and other situational activities. Grade based on oral participation, homework assignments, in-class work, compositions, exams, and a final written and oral exam.

The aim of this course is to motivate students to learn Spanish using plays, poems, and the Spanish culture as background to put materials into context.

Most of the course content studied will reflect the world of Federico García Lorca, a well known Spanish playwright and poet.

Throughout the course one of his works, Blood Wedding, will be acted out by the students. Therefore, willingness to participate in it is a must.

We will as well expand on the linguistic abilities necessary to fulfill the aims of the course, that is:

  1. narrate and describe in the present, past, and future;
  2. express and support opinions, express feelings and emotions about present, past, and future events;
  3. hypothesize about the future and present.

Museo de la Región Andina

This class is a collection of topics focusing on Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. The topics such as El Dorado and Marimbas recognize and explore the geographic, cultural, and historical similarities and differences of the societies that come to be known as the Región Andina. Students will propose and develop their own conceptual "objects" for our museum, and participate in a project of their interest. At the same time, students will be exposed to the major communicative functions that characterize the intermediate mid/high levels of proficiency: a. narrate and describe in the present, past, and future; b. express and support opinions, express feelings and emotions about present, past and future events; c. hypothesize about the future and present.

Enforced Prerequisites: SPANISH 231 with a grade of C- or higher; or assignment by placement test. College or university transfer students with any prior study of Spanish must take the Placement Test; RCLANG 254.

Credit Exclusions: No credit granted to those who have completed SPANISH 112 or 230; or RCLANG 294 or 314.

The principal aim of both the topics and non-topics courses is to acquire a more profound understanding of the history, politics, society, culture, customs, and literature of the Hispanic world through listening, writing, reading, and speaking activities in Spanish. At the same time, students develop the language tools, both grammatical functions and vocabulary, necessary to discuss issues of relevance to Hispanic culture and to analyze these situations while expressing their own personal opinions, reactions, conclusions, and possible outcomes to hypothetical situations. Therefore, the practice and application of grammatical features and vocabulary are integrated into the content of the course, and students are expected to formally study and practice these structures individually through the explanations provided in the textbook and the practice activities assigned as homework. Materials include newspaper articles, cultural readings, videos, short lectures, listening comprehension activities, and computer materials.

Work requirements/evaluation criteria for non-topics sections: Regular attendance crucial. Participation in class includes asking and answering questions, initiating discussion, role playing, and other situational activities. Grade based on oral participation, homework assignments, in-class work, compositions, exams, and a final written and oral exam.

TEXTS for non-topics sections:

  1. Required:
    • Más allá de las palabras: Mastering Intermediate Spanish
      Includes: Mastering Intermediate Spanish Book 2 (blue book) and workbook/lab manual
  2. Recommended:
    • A good bilingual Spanish-English dictionary.

The aim of this course is to motivate students to learn Spanish using plays, poems, and the Spanish culture as background to put materials into context.

Most of the course content studied will reflect the world of Federico García Lorca, a well known Spanish playwright and poet. The course will expand on the significance of feelings, the life and death of the poet, analysis of his works, and, ultimately, attempts to involve students in discussion and examination of the ideas presented.

Throughout the course one of his works, Blood Wedding, will be acted out by the students. Therefore, willingness to participate in it is a must.

We will as well expand on the linguistic abilities necessary to fulfill the aims of the course, that is:

  1. narrate and describe in the present, past, and future;
  2. express and support opinions, express feelings and emotions about present, past, and future events;
  3. hypothesize about the future and present.

This course will deal with one of the most idiosyncratic regions of Spain: Galicia. The course will provide comprehensive historic background and also details on the different cultures merging together in this most-northwestern corner of Spain. Students will learn about the Celtic, Roman, and Christian heritage, more Spanish history of the area and the repercussions of all these events in the making of Galicia the way it is today. Alongside with this historical background, folklore, traditions and places of tourist importance (such as Viking invasion celebrations, Summer folk festivals and The Camino de Santiago) will be shown to illustrate the diversity of Galicia and its amazing and magical power of attraction, which resonates in the name of the course: the Romans called one of the capes on the Galician coast "Finisterre": the edge/end of the world.

What does it mean when we say that Spanish, French, Portuguese, Catalan, Italian and Rumanian are Romance languages? This course will examine the concept of language family and deal specifically with the family known as the Romance languages, i.e., the languages descended from Latin. Taking Spanish as the starting point, we will examine the linguistic structures (sounds, forms, grammar, vocabulary) that the Romance languages have in common, and those features that distinguish Spanish from its sister languages. Although not prerequisites, an introductory course in linguistics and some knowledge of a second Romance language would be helpful background for students taking this course. The material will be somewhat technical and this course should be taken only by students who are (or who think they may be) genuinely interested in the subject matter. Students will be evaluated on the basis of a series of exams and written assignments.

The purpose of this course is to acquaint students with the basic traits of Latin American Literature since the 19th century. The course will relate literature and culture with the social and political changes that have marked the process of Latin American societies since 1830, the period corresponding to the beginning of the formation of the national states. Classes will evolve from Romanticism, Naturalism, and Modernism, the three main 19th century literary styles, to the development of a popular literary consciousness ("Criollismo," "Costumbrismo" and "Indigenismo") during the first half of the 20th century, as well as the more modern styles developed by the writers of the "avant garde" (Vanguardismo), the "Literatura del Boom," and the more recent examples of "testimonio," linked to present-day discussions on gender and other contemporary aspects of Latin American everyday life.

Active participation of students is required. The grade will be based on three partial take-home exams and one oral interview. The course pack will cost approximately $30.

Enforced Prerequisites: SPANISH 275 and 276; or SPANISH 290 and 310; or SPANISH 276 and 290; or RCLANG 324.

SPANISH 430 — Advanced Studies in Hispanic Culture and Society
Section 003, LEC
Franco Regime

Instructor: Highfill,Juli A; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3

Taking the Franco Regime (1939-1975), as a case study, we will examine everyday life under dictatorship, relying on historical and literary texts, popular magazines, newsreels and films. As we explore this material, we will delve into the operations of power — not only the brute power imposed by the regime upon its people, but also the less visible, pervasive power that individuals imposed upon themselves and each other. In other words,

  • how did power percolate through everyday life?
  • How was it manifested in the formation of identities, in family structure, in linguistic expression?
  • How did people find ways of countering that power, through covert or overt means of resistance?
  • How did everyday life differ for the winners and losers of the Spanish Civil War, and for members of distinct social classes?
  • What was it like to be a young person growing up in such a society, during a time when the horizons of possibility were limited and gender roles strictly prescribed?
  • How did the regime use film, music, and television to perpetuate its power?
  • And how did some writers and filmmakers develop creative, evasive strategies for criticizing the regime, even while their works were subject to censorship?

Expectations: The amount of reading will be reasonable but sometimes difficult; therefore, students must have strong reading-comprehension skills. Written assignments include two exams and two essays (5 — 7 pp. each). Students will also give an oral presentation (either individually or in groups) based on research of an aspect of everyday life in the Franco Regime.

Attendance at evening film viewings every two weeks is mandatory, Wednesdays, 7:00 — 9:00. These film viewings will be considered part of the assigned homework. Films include El laberinto del fauno, Bienvenido Mister Marshall, Muerte de un ciclista, La gran familia, La violetera, El jardín de las delicias.

Texts: In addition to a coursepack, students should purchase the following books (note the publisher, year of publication and ISBN; all students should have these editions):

Section 001, LEC

Instructor: La Fountain-Stokes,Lawrence M; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3

This course is an exploration of the politics of language as they are reflected in Latino/a literature and culture in the United States, with a special focus on Chicano/a or Mexican-American, Nuyorican/Puerto Rican, Dominican-American, and Cuban-American experience. What role does language play in U.S. Latino/a culture? How is language a part of different communities and cultural productions? In this class, we will examine film, literature, music, performance, and video, and see how they employ Spanish, English, Spanglish, Pachuco Caló, and other language varieties, and how language proficiency affects social experience. Practices such as code-switching will receive particular attention. Analysis will focus on the role of age, class, ethnicity, family, gender, generational differences, geographical location, historical period, immigrant status, place of birth, race, and sexual orientation as these relate to linguistic usage in the works studied, and on the specific effects and uses of language in cultural productions. Consideration will be given to the ways in which each particular cultural medium produces meaning. Course will be taught in Spanish, with reading assignments in English and Spanish. All written work will be in Spanish. Course requirements will include occasional short (1-page) reaction papers, two partial exams (one during midterm and another towards the end of the semester), a 5-page midterm paper on a pre-assigned topic, a 10-page final research paper on a topic chosen by individual student, and a class presentation on course readings or films.

SPANISH 450 — Middle Ages
Section 003, REC

FA 2007
Credits: 3

'The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there.' So says an English novelist in 1953. If the early 20th century feels like a foreign country, what about the Middle Ages? What to say about the Middle Ages in Spain? This class will think about travel and time, about time travel too, and about the confrontation with the 'not-me' that any travel — historical, imaginative, or spatial — entails.

We'll read things written in the Iberian peninsula from the 10th through the 14th centuries: an epic about border-making and border-crossing (the Poema del Cid ), the tale of a wandering, skirt-chasing priest (the Libro de buen amor ); we may even watch some time-travel movies. We'll read first-person stories of journeys made by real medieval people (Benjamin of Tudela; a woman named Egeria), and study the greatest of all travel routes in the period, the pilgrimage road to Santiago de Compostela, at the very Western edge of what for Europeans was the known world.

Will we come back the same people from a trip to the end of the world?

This course is taught in Spanish.

Enforced Prerequisites: Three courses in SPANISH 300 or above (excluding 308); or two RCLANG 324 courses and two courses in SPANISH 300 or above (excluding 308).

SPANISH 473 — Colonial/Postcolonial Studies in Latin-American Cultures
Section 001, REC
Colonial Discourse and Postcolonial Theory

Instructor: Verdesio,Gustavo; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3

One of the goals of this course is to explore the limitations of Postcolonial theory as a tool to understand or make sense of Latin American culture and society. We will read authors like Edward Said, Homi Bhabha, Ngugi Wa Thiongo, Aimee Cesaire and many other Postcolonial critics. Most of these authors elaborated their theoretical apparatuses from the perspective of subjects who had broken the colonial ties to empires such as the British and French ones. At the same time, we will read some canonical Latin American literary works and will watch some Latin American films in order to test the explanatory power of the aforementioned Postcolonial critics. Parallel to these readings we will study some Latin American critics such as Hugo Achugar, Angel Rama and Néstor García Canclini, whose theoretical frameworks are originated in the framework of decolonization that Latin American independent republics have been developing for the last 175 years, in order to see how their approaches differ from the ones practiced by Postcolonial authors.

Through the comparison of these different types of texts we will be able to assess the explanatory power of Postcolonial theory as well as its limitations for the study of Latin America. We will also be able to evaluate the methods and theories generated by Latin Americanists, not only from Latin America, but also from the U.S. academic world.
