SUBTITLE: España, o la construcción conflictiva de una identidad

This course intends to invite the students to an examination of the
different factors that built, along the years, the cultural identity
of the country called Spain, and the struggles and crises which that
process of cultural construction presented along the centuries.
Along the course, we will examine the different historical, social,
political, cultural, linguistic, religious, and ethnic factors that
contribute to shape the cultural identity of present-day Spain.

Class discussion and assignments will be in Spanish.  The final
grade will be based in a midterm, a final exam and a number of small
papers. Course evaluation will be also based on class participation
and discussion.

This course carries Culture Studies credit and is highly recommended
for students who plan to go on the Overseas Studies Madrid Academic
Year program.
