HISP 375 - The Spanish Civil War: Memory, Text and Image

This class focuses on the memory of the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). The class studies national and global political issues as well as the construction of historical and collective memory. Some of the topics the class covers are the military and political course of the war, along with its literature and visual art, including the main ideological movements (Anarchism, Communism, Fascism and Socialism). The course is divided in three parts: (1) theories of memory, history, and photography; (2) students’ presentation on topics related to the War; (3) analysis of three recent novels that present different memories from the war.
