Course coordinator: Kristina Primorac-Waggoner, kprimora@umich.edu

Accelerated refresher course for students with two or three years of high school Spanish whose previous study did not occur within the preceding two years. Equivalent to SPANISH 101 and 102 condensed into one term. Admittance into the course is by placement exam recommendation or permission of the coordinator only.

Course Objectives: Introduction to the Spanish language and culture. Task- and content-based approach integrates grammar in a functional use through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Language use encouraged through communicative activities rather than a sequence of linguistic units. Video, audio cassette, and computer material incorporated.

Goals: Students completing SPANISH 103 will know about different sociocultural norms, acting with awareness of such differences; speak in short spontaneous conversations involving everyday topics, observing basic courtesy requirements; understand the gist of one-way communication such as radio and television; read for practical information; write simple correspondence and short compositions on familiar topics, with good control of basic sentence structure.

Work Requirements/Evaluation Criteria: Regular attendance essential. 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, three exams, and a final written and oral exam.

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, audio cassette, 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.

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, audio cassette, 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.

Welcome to this topic course of SPANISH 232. I hope you will enjoy your experience at learning Spanish through the works of Federico García Lorca, and that you may find a successful use of the knowledge you will acquire, either professionally or at a personal level.

When I decided to create a topic course mostly related to this poet, I could not help being very enthusiastic about the possibilities that were open for implementation of teaching Spanish in this context. The works of Lorca are full of a fascinating force and beauty, and I feel privileged to have the chance to use these materials for teaching. We will study the relevance of his poetry in the historical period, the circle of suffering, the voice of fate and how he travels from senses to symbols. At the same time, using his understanding of the world, you will further acquire the language tools, both grammatical functions and vocabulary, necessary to discuss issues of relevance to you as an individual and to express, in the past, present, and future, your own personal experiences, opinions, reactions, conclusions and possible outcomes to hypothetical situations.

The emphasis of the course is on the development of the four skills (listening, writing, reading and speaking). Students will have a very active role in the class and will be encouraged to act out scenes from different plays, but mostly we will focus on Blood Wedding for the oral presentation of scenes. You will be required to put an effort into memorizing and understanding the motives of the characters, please be aware that by enrolling in this class you are agreeing to act in front of your peers or other audiences. The course requires regular classroom participation and approximately two hours of outside preparation for every hour of class.

With regards to the coursepack, you will find there information and activities to expand on the different grammatical aspects, movie guides, a copy of the play Blood Wedding and a number of other activities related to Lorca's life and historical period.

This course is designed for students who plan to work in the field of medicine and will come into contact with the Hispanic population through their work, and also for students who plan to travel or relocate to a Hispanic country. It will present you with opportunities to practice Spanish in realistic medicine-related situations. You will learn and utilize vocabulary and language necessary for practical day-to-day use as medical professionals interacting with members of the Spanish-speaking world. You will also become familiar with Hispanic customs and practices in relation to medicine in order to promote positive interactions with Spanish speakers. The course will be conducted entirely in Spanish. Since this is primarily a Spanish language course, this course is not appropriate for native speakers of Spanish.

This course takes as its starting point the notion of "women's writing" itself. Does it, in fact, make sense to talk about women writers as a literary category? As a political and social category?

By reading a panorama of works from Latin America and Spain, the course intends to problematize the concept of "women's writing" in order to allow subtler issues of marginalization, captivity, markets, crisis, violence and resistance to come to the forefront.

We will read texts by Ocampo, Valenzuela, Agustini, Peri Rossi, Belli, Laforet and others, supplemented by theoretical writings by bell hooks, Helene Cixous, Sor Juana and others.

This review of Colonial Latin American Literature (16th to 18th centuries) moves among several organizing points of analysis. We will use texts to explore the divergent consequences the "encounter" had for the indigenous cultures and for the Western conceptual universe. In this respect, we will highlight the importance of the colonial world in the future development of Western ways of knowing. We will also look at the colonial period as an era of profound tensions which produced new subjects (neither European nor Indian) and transformed "old ones" (new ways of being Indian, for example), whose texts are in constant struggle with each other and with their cultural and economic environment. Finally, we'll keep in mind the period's legacy for Latin American countries as seen in the social and economic inequalities institutionalized at all levels of society.

Participants will learn about the segmental and suprasegmental features of Spanish, and will become experienced in phonetic transcription. They will apply the rules of Spanish pronunciation to their own speech (in controlled as well as open-ended contexts), and will undergo a diagnostic test at the beginning and end of the term that will determine their success in applying the knowledge and practice of these rules to the improvement of their pronunciation. Students will understand the principles of Spanish orthography, and will recognize the dialectal diversity of Spanish in Iberia and the Americas, as well as the phonetic features that characterize the most salient dialects. The course includes graded written and oral homework assignments, two partial exams and a final exam.

SPANISH 428 — Internship in Spanish
Section 001, IND

WN 2007
Credits: 1 — 3
Other: INDEPENDENT

This course allows up to three credits for internships that involve the extensive use of Spanish, either abroad or within the US. Some of the internships may be offered in established study-abroad programs, others will be offered by companies or non-profit organizations.

Our department offers a community service course (SPANISH 448), but we do not have the means to organize individual internships. Therefore, students will have to take the initiative to locate, arrange, and propose the internships. We highly recommend the non-profit organization, Amigos de las Americas, a well-established volunteer program that places students in public-health projects throughout Latin America. In addition, students may find helpful links that could lead to internships on our department website.

Before the internship, you must arrange the following:

  1. Find a sponsoring faculty member who will advise you, suggest readings, and evaluate the written work that you will submit during and/or after you complete the internship.
  2. Submit a letter from the director or supervisor of the internship program. This letter must:
    • describe the service work you will perform
    • confirm that you will primarily use Spanish in that service work
    • specify how many working hours are involved (a minimum of 100 contact hours is required for a three-credit course, or 33 hours per credit if enrolled for less than 3 credits)
  3. Submit a proposal that includes a reading list and written assignments. The proposal should include:
    • An introductory paragraph that describes the work site and the services you will perform. Also, you should indicate how the work relates to your academic interests and specialization (concentrations/minor) and to your future career plans.
    • A brief list of readings related to your service work (for example, 2-3 books, or 5-10 articles, or an appropriate mix of books and articles). You may choose readings yourself or ask your faculty sponsor for suggestions. We recognize that in an internship, most of your time is taken up by service work; the required minimum amount of related readings will help you to reflect critically and thoughtfully on your experiences.
    • A description of your writing assignments, which may consist either of several short papers or a final project, but must total 10 to 20 pages. You may write, for example, a narrative summary of your experiences, including critical reflections that also draw from the readings. Or you may write a research paper based on your experiences and the readings.
After completing the internship, you will submit to your faculty sponsor the remaining written assignments along with a second letter from your supervisor in the internship program. This letter should describe the work you performed and reconfirm that it met the requirements of 100 contact hours of primary Spanish usage (or 33 hours per credit).

Enrollment: You may enroll in this course, SPANISH 428, either during the term in which you are working as an intern (in which case you would submit the written work at the end of that term) or in the term after you return from the internship and submit your work then. In either case, you must make arrangements in our department before you begin the internship by finding a faculty sponsor and submitting a proposal for his/her approval. If you are already abroad when you find an opportunity for an internship, you may through e-mail seek a faculty sponsor and send a proposal to him/her before you begin work. In such a case, you should first contact professors with whom you have had class. If none is available to serve as a sponsor, review the complete list of faculty on the Romance Languages website. When you are ready to enroll for the credits, your faculty sponsor will notify our Student Services Representative, who will enter an electronic permission to allow you to enroll in the course.

VISUALIZING DON QUIJOTE DE LA MANCHA

Instructor: Gil,Juan Pablo

WN 2007
Credits: 3

Cervantes' Don Quijote de la Mancha is considered one of the most important works of fiction ever written and has inspired many other artists. Through the visualizations of engravers, painters, and cinematographers we will explore various interpretations of the madness‹or perhaps wisdom‹of the universal man of La Mancha. In order to achieve a more complete understanding of the cultural and literary richness of Don Quijote, each student will present one article addressing different critical perspectives on the work.

Attendance and participation are compulsory and will constitute part of the final grade.

FIRST IMAGES OF AMERICA: THE EARLY CHRONICLERS

Instructor: Verdesio,Gustavo; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 3

The objective of this course is to study some of the stages of the long process best defined as the intellectual (and/or ideological) creation of America by the European subject. The course will focus on the culture specific ways in which European subjects confronted the new as well as on the ways they produced knowledge about the unknown. In order to do so, we will read the first text written by a European explorer, the Diary of Columbus (a paradigmatic narrative that served as a model for other texts), where the author gives an account of the new lands and their inhabitants. Next, we will read E. O'Gorman, who advances a theory about America as an entity or concept created by the European imagination (with the help of Columbus's Diary as a point of departure). After O'Gorman, we will study the Letters of Cortés, the first Conquistador to give a description of an indigenous society organized around a state. Another text to be analyzed is Pigafetta's account of Magellan's voyage of circumnavigation. The last author to be studied, Thomas Harriot, gives us an early description of the territory and inhabitants of North America. Patricia Seed's American Pentimento analyzes the different ways in which different European nations appropriated indigenous land and how our views of the Amerindians are still informed by those exploitative practices of yesteryear.

Indigenous Peoples of the Americas in the Western Imaginary

Instructor: Verdesio,Gustavo; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 3

This course will focus on Ancient civilizations in the Americas and how we perceive them today. One of its purposes is to give students an idea of the vast variety of indigenous cultures in pre-Columbian times, how much we know about some of them but, most of all, how much we ignore.

Special attention will be paid to their subsistence patterns and social organizational principles. Another goal of this course is to analyze the ways in which we, from a Western vantage point, portray indigenous cultures. The book compiled by Nina Jablonski, The First Americans, gives us an overview of how we think the Americas were colonized by human beings. We will read Steve Stern's book on a region of the former Inca Empire, Huamanga, in order to learn about the relationship between the Inca rulers and their subjects. The book also deals with the different ways in which indigenous peoples from the Andes adapted to the changes provoked by European colonization. Michael D. Coe gives us the chance to focus on how Western civilization viewed and construed Maya culture, with special emphasis on the Ancient civilization's writing system. A book compiled by Pauketat and Emerson will contain information about the cultures that populated the Valleys of the Rivers Ohio and Mississippi in prehistoric times. In order to see how nineteenth- and twentieth-century writers view indigenous cultures, we will read a couple of novels: The Last of the Mohicans, by J. Fenimore Cooper, and Cricket Sings, by Kathleen King. We are also going to watch a few movies that represent indigenous subjects and cultures, such as Hollywood Westerns and a couple of ethnographic films, as well as fragments from Pocahontas, 1492, and others. At the end of the course we will pass the mike to the indigenous subjects themselves and will try to listen to what they have to say. The two books that will close the course are Nuestra arma es nuestra palabra, by Subcomandante Marcos (about the Chiapas, Mexico, insurgent indigenous movement) and Custer Died for Your Sins. An Indian Manifesto, by Vine Deloria Jr.

SPANISH 485 — Case Studies in Peninsular Spanish and Latin American Literature
Section 001, REC
Popular Consciousness in the Andean Region

Instructor: Sanjinés,Javier C; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 3

Starting with a key film of the 1960s ('Ukamau'), which analyzes the Andean societies of the first half of the twentieth century, this course will study two Latin American novels written between 1920 and 1950. These novels (Jorge Icaza's Huasipungo and Ciro Alegría's El mundo es ancho y ajeno) appear in a historical period when Latin America moves from the expansion of its export free-trade economies (1900-1930) into the period of import-substituting industrialization (1930-1950s). By shifting from the literary into the sociohistorical development of Latin America throughout the first half of the twentieth century, this course will focus on how literature registers the creation of multiclass 'populist' alliances. The course will also relate narrative with José Carlos Mariátegui's Siete ensayos de interpretacion de la realidad peruana, a key socio-political essay written in 1928.

Students taking this course should be motivated to study literature from economic and sociopolitical points of view. Students are expected to participate very actively in class discussions. The grade will be based on two take-home exams and a final oral interview.


Books will be ordered by Shaman Drum Bookstore. The cost will range between $90 and $120.

SPANISH 828 — Narratives of the Transicion

Narratives of Transicion: Postdictadura y memoria cultural

Instructor: Moreiras-Menor,Cristina

WN 2007
Credits: 3

El seminario traerá a debate las siempre conflictivas políticas de la memoria que se inauguran a partir de la muerte del dictador Francisco Franco (1975) y que negocian la relación que la contemporaneidad democratica ‘debe' mantener con la dictadura. Trazaremos un mapa intelectual de una España que rompe (quizás) con el pasado para hacer una entrada limpia en Europa y en la esfera comercial internacional. España como ‘caso' nos permitirá una reflexión filosófica, estética, política y teórica sobre la temporalidad que gobierna la historia y la memoria cultural. Se analizarán los ‘nuevos' modos de representación, las ‘nuevas' construcciones culturales de sujetos (identidades) sexuales, políticas y regionales en el contexto de ciertas prácticas sociales que emergen durante la transición y la posdictadura como un intento de redefinición de una cultura que ha estado sujeta, durante décadas, a ideologías estatales monolíticas, homogeneizantes y violentas. A través de la cultura de los últimos años del siglo veinte, el seminario pensará la sistemática cancelaciónde un pasado con el la hegemonía no quiere lidiar y la presencia espectral de una historia que se niega a ser cancelada. Interesa pensar cómo se produce esta convivencia y los efectos que ella produce.

El seminario incluirá la lectura de escritores españoles contemporáneos como Goytisolo, Vázquez Montalbán, Marsé, Mendicutti, Gopegui (entre otros); textos teóricos de Derrida, Benjamin, Lacan (entre otros); textos de comentario histórico-político, entre los que se incluirán Gregorio Morán, Eduardo Subirats, Teresa Vilarós y Nelly Richard. Testimonios de familiares de desaparecidos de la guerra civil. Se incluirán también importantes films españoles de estos años (Almodóvar, Amenábar, Miró, de Toro). Todo ello para articular, desde la práctica de la memoria cultural (y sus ‘modos': melancolía, duelo, trauma, acting-out, etc) una escena crítica de la contemporaneidad.

Is it possible to talk about new(s) realism(s) (and what are the ‘literary', cultural, and political consequences of it)? Is there a Avant-Garde production today? What do we do with the idea/problems of the ‘new' and the ‘post'?

Latin American Classics

Instructor: Williams,Gareth

WN 2007
Credits: 3

The classic novel is linked to the tensions opened up by the Latin American national-popular state's internal processes of state modernization and cultural integration in the first decades of the twentieth century. Such internal processes were to a large extent a response to local or regional conditions. However, they were also responding to the place of the national in a geopolitical configuration characterized by the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914, the catastrophe of the Great War of 1914-1918, and the political horizons of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. Literary expression and literature as an institution become central to the project of giving ‘difference' or ‘otherness' a language within the public sphere. This course will examine the aporias of modern and modernist expression, representation and capture in Latin America.

Primary readings:

Gallegos, Doña Bárbara.
Gü iraldes, Don Segundo Sombra.
Ortiz, Contrapunteo cubano (selección)
Asturias, Hombres de maíz.
