Span Identity/Generation '98
National identities reflect the conflicts and contradictions in the social and political arenas in which they are constructed and conceptualized. What is the role of literature and music in the building of Spanish National Identity? In this course we will study the social and political circumstances in Spain from the end of the 19th Century to the Civil War (1936-39). We will focus on literary texts of the writers of the Generation of '98 as well as on musical traditions as diverse as the "zarzuela," and the "pasodoble," that contributed to change the notion of National Identity in Spain. Writers to be analyzed include Angel Ganivet, José Martínez Ruiz "Azorín," Pío Baroja, Ramiro de Maeztu, Antonio Machado, Miguel de Unamuno, and Ramón Maria del Valle Inclán; composers include Manuel de Falla and Isaac Albéniz.
