SPAN 160C1 – The Arts and Politics in Latin America

This course deals with the relationship between politics and cultural expressions in Latin America. These cultural expressions studied are literature, muralism, music, paintings, documentaries, escrache and cinema. How do these expressions relate to what was, and it¿s still happening in Latin American society? How do people in power shape systems? How do artists criticize or support governments? How do their art reflect their context?

Students will investigate and analyze how governments collaborate shaping the system, and explore how changes such as dictatorships, revolutions, conquests, etc., affect a society, and discuss how art helps us have a better understanding of our history and our role as global citizens.

SPAN 202 – Fourth Semester Spanish

Continuation of Spanish 101, 102, and 201 or by placement exam. As the second semester of the second year Spanish, this course is designed to provide insight into the literature and culture of the Spanish speaking countries. Themes are developed by content-based cultural activities, which provide awareness in the Hispanic culture, and encourage students to formulate opinions on a variety of contemporary issues through authentic readings, discussions and writing. This course reviews the grammatical concepts in a more sophisticated way and analyses more complex syntactic structures considered within a functional whole such as the subjunctive moods, etc. The teaching approach integrates grammar and culture in a functional use through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Classroom activities stress communication across the four skills with a strong aural, oral and written component. Audio, video, and computer materials incorporated.
