Contemporary Issues on Film (SPA2109.01)

Sarah Harris

Students in this course will continue to learn the Spanish language through an examination of contemporary issues in films in Spanish. While there will be some necessary discussion about cinematographic components, the focus of discussion will be on social and political issues present in the films. A consideration, for instance, of national and regional identity, violence, border crossing, intolerance, and gender issues, will drive the student-generated conversation. The course will also provide specific and explicit support for the linguistic development necessary to communicate in increasingly complex ways, in both written and oral Spanish. Conducted in Spanish. Introductory level.
