This course offers a general view of the development of civilization and culture in Spain from its beginnings to the present. It is organized to introduce students to the major political and social movements in Spanish history and the principal trends in the arts that have given Spain an idiosyncratic culture within the broader context of Western Civilization. A variety of language models, including classroom discussions, set the stage for assimilation of the conversational function of the language. The course is conducted in Spanish and is intended to complement language studies as well as provide a foundation for subsequent courses in Hispanic literature. 06-01-2020-01-04-2020 Lecture Monday, Wednesday 01:30PM - 02:45PM, School Sustainable Design Eng, Room 301
