SPAN 213 - Seville and the Foundations of Spanish Civilization


FDR: HU
Experiential Learning (EXP): Yes
Credits: 4

Prerequisite: SPAN 162 or 164 and instructor consent. This course takes place in Seville, Spain, and uses this privileged location to study the cultures of Foundational Spain. Primary focus is on the medieval and Renaissance periods, from the troubled co-existence of Muslims, Jews, and Christians to the Christian reconquest and subsequent Empire. Significant cultural currents are examined through texts (literary, historical, and religious), direct contact with art and architecture through site visits, and with hands-on exposure to early and contemporary cuisine. Students live in homestays, attend daily classes, participate in site visits, and engage with the local culture independently and through planned activities. Bailey.
