Language Through Film (SPA4223.01)

Sarah Harris

Students in this course will continue to learn the Spanish language through an examination of films. While there will be some necessary discussion about cinematographic components, the focus of discussion will be on historical and political moments present in the films. A consideration, for instance, of national and regional identity, political violence, border crossing, intolerance, and gender identity, 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. Corequisites: attendance at 2 Language Series events

Prerequisites: Spanish 1 at Bennington, or permission of instructor. For registration, contact the teacher via email.
