Prerequisite:  Completed two courses from:  S328, S331, S332, S333

DESCRIPCION: Sex and the City (and the Country)

In this course we will track the changes of style and content in
Modern Spanish Literature by reading key texts, from the famous DON
JUAN TENORIO to the 21st century, including short stories by Emilia
Pardo Bazán and novels by Unamuno, Valle-Inclán and Carmen Riera.
The course centers on analyses of social and gender practices over
nearly two centuries. It will also examine critiques of changing
Spanish institutions and attitudes towards individual freedom of
action encoded in the texts.

This is a discussion course with emphasis on the close reading and
discussion of daily reading assignments within the parameters
indicated above. Daily attendance is paramount. Written work for the
course includes analytical essays, a midterm, and a final exam. The
course is taught in Spanish; Spanish is the language of class
discussion and of all written work for the course.
