SPAN 254 - FALL 2021
painting by Cuban artist Wifredo Lam

In this class, students examine how culture shapes the values, beliefs, and artistic production of Iberian, Latin American, and Latinx communities. We will focus on a range of issues relevant to the Spanish-speaking world, including questions of race, gender, sexuality, and class. Students will learn how to analyze the representation of these issues in Spanish as they appear in different media such as film, poetry, short stories, essays, and visual art.
