Course Description

As the title suggests, SPN 328 presents an overview of many aspects of Spanish culture and civilization: art, architecture, history, literature, music, etc. The course is structured chronologically. We will begin with the pre-history of the Iberian Peninsula (the Caves of Altamira) and end with present-day Spain. Special topics we study over the course of the semester include the watershed events that took place in 1492 (the conquest of Granada and the completion of the Re-conquest, the expulsion of the Jews and the first voyage of Colombus) the Spanish Missions in Texas and the American Southwest, and the Spanish Civil War.
