SPAN 338 - The Invention of Spain: a Metamorphosis of the Modern (4)

This course begins in the 19th Century during the last throws of a dying Spanish Empire. We will track Spanish literature and history through such extreme experience as foreign invasion, nationalism, dictatorships, civil wars, censorship and the (often exiled) avant guarde, finally ending with a remarkable return to the freedoms of democracy in the late 20th Century. Prerequisite: SPAN 206.
