Spain 1975 to Present

Spain 1975 to the Present
According to a recent worldwide study conducted by UNESCO, Spain is the western country where the most profound social and material changes have occurred in the last 30 years. We will look at the historical, cultural, and social development of Spain from the death of Franco in 1975 to the present. Also, one of the main goals of the course will be to provide an array of opportunities to practice oral expression in the Spanish language. We will do so through the analysis and discussion of a wide variety of materials: literary texts, essays, films, music, and visual arts. Topics will include Europeanization, the challenge of regional/national identities, and contemporary social issues such as the changing role of women, religion, sexual attitudes, and immigration.
