NEW SUMMER COURSE:

SP 153: Intensive Intermediate Spanish (Luisa-Maria Rojas Rimachi)

Combining SP 151 and SP 152, this communication-based, intermediate-level Spanish language course focuses on learning and reviewing of vocabulary and grammar structures, with a strong emphasis in oral discussion and comprehension with a steady emphasis on formal, written skills. It also integrates skills related to culture. Students will revisit the grammatical structures learned in the introductory level, and continue to develop the ability to communicate meaningfully and accurately. They will do so by reading, writing, listening and viewing texts and films of Spanish and Spanish-American cultures. This intensive course is designed to advance the communication skills (speaking, writing, reading, and listening) of students while at the same time allowing them to continue to expand their vocabulary and cultural competence. The course will include a variety of activities, texts, assignments, such as cultural topics, art, literature, listening and reading comprehension, group activities, etc.

NEW AND REVISED COURSES:

CLT 101C: Disability Studies: Rethinking Difference & persity (Beth Jörgensen)

People with disabilities constitute the world’s largest, most stigmatized, and most marginalized “minority,” and yet many of us don’t include this identity in our thinking when we speak of and celebrate human persity and inclusion. The field of disability studies has, since the 1980s, examined and theorized the complex meanings of disability throughout history. Work by DS scholars offers insights into disability identities as both embodied realities, and social and cultural constructions. This course will provide an introduction to disability studies, and an exploration of the literary representations of physical, intellectual and psychosocial disability in works chosen from a variety of national traditions. Reading journal, short essays, research paper.

FR 233/433: Realists & Romantics (Robert Doran)

Nineteenth-century French literature witnessed two competing but also complementary literary currents: romanticism and realism. This course will study these two movements with reference to the historical, political, and social contexts in which they arose, as well as to their common intellectual source in Rousseau. We will examine the lyric poetry of Lamartine, Vigny, and Musset, the literary and cultural criticism of Madame de Staël (De la littérature), the novellas of Constant (Adolphe) and Hugo (Le dernier jour d’un condamné), the realist novels of Balzac (Eugénie Grandet) and Stendhal (Le rouge et le noir), the theater of Dumas (Antony), Hugo (Hernani), and Musset (Lorenzaccio). Conducted in French.

GER 286/486: New Austrian Cinema (Jennifer Creech)

In this course, we will focus on recent developments in Austrian cinema. Not unlike other cinematic “new waves,” Austria’s artists politically and aesthetically resist the petit-bourgeois mindset of their fellow citizens. Considered within the national/European context of “official” Austria and its long avoidance of dealing with its fascist past, and within a global context of the post-modern “state of exception,” new Austrian film offers viewers a spectatorial position from which to consider the “society of control” (Foucault/Deleuze/Hardt). Beginning with the avant-garde works of VALIE EXPORT, this course will emphasize works by Barbara Albert, Florian Flicker, Michael Glawogger, Michael Haneke, Stefan Ruzowitzky, Ulrich Seidl, Peter Tscherkassky, and Valeska Grisebach.

KOR 101: Elementary Korean I (Instructor TBD)

This course will introduced students to the Korean writing system and basic vocabulary and grammar, while building skills in reading, writing and conversation.

POR 151: Intermediate Portuguese I (Teresa Valdez)

Portuguese 151 is the first Intermediate course in Portuguese. In POR 151, you will continue to expand your knowledge of Portuguese vocabulary and grammar structures while engaging in activities geared toward promoting intermediate proficiency in the language. It includes authentic texts readings and discussions, as well as writing and engage in and sustain face-to-face conversation with others about topics studied. As far as Portuguese is concerned, the terms “lecture” and “recitation” conventionally used to identify the blocks have a purely bureaucratic significance and do not reflect in any way the pedagogical approach of the course. Portuguese is the primary language of instruction.

SP 203: Origins & Empire: Reading the Early Hispanic World (Ryan Prendergast)

This course critically examines texts from a variety of literary genres as a way to better understand the literary production of the pre-18th-century Hispanic World. Using the overarching themes of origins and empire, students will study how authors imagined, represented, and critiqued religion, politics, gender roles, race, and power in Spain and the so-called New World. Special attention will be paid to some iconic literary characters like Celestina and Don Juan. Authors will include: Miguel de Cervantes, Hernán Cortés, Christopher Columbus, Tirso de Molina and Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. Class in Spanish.​

SP 218/418: Saints, Sinners & Sovereigns in Medieval & Early Modern Spain (Ryan Prendergast)

This course will study various literary, artistic, and historical representations in order to better understand how the discourses of religious and secular life shaped identity, politics, and cultural production in medieval and early modern Spain. We will explore the writing of those who would become saints (e.g. Teresa de Ávila and Juan de la Cruz) as well as texts that examine either the morality or amorality of the time period through characters like go-betweens or pícaros. We will also investigate how various kings and queens (including The Catholic Monarchs, Carlos V, and Felipe II) are represented in portraits and how writers incorporated fictionalized versions of monarchs in their texts. Some themes which will help guide our discussion will include: gender, the saintly body, crime and punishment, the Spanish Inquisition, religious difference, and the burgeoning empire. A few short papers and/or exams, a longer research paper and a presentation will be the basis for evaluation. In Spanish.

SP 262B/462B: Cuba at a Crossroads (Raúl Rodríguez-Hernández)

An enduring experiment in socialism, Cuba has long been part of global debate and expectation, both on the island and among Cuban diasporic communities. Academic inquiry has ranged from Havana as an architectural monument, to leadership after the Castro brothers, from the Buena Vista Social Club to tourism and international hotel chains like Melià. This course examines historical framework, cultural mestizaje (influences of Europe, Latin America, and Africa), arts, and film to elicit conversations about the strategic island. Readings include José Martí, Cristina García, Fernández Retamar, Oscar Hijuelos, Senel Paz, Nicolás Guillén, Alejo Carpentier, Lezama Lima, Reinaldo Arenas, Cabrera Infante, Nancy Morejón. Taught in Spanish.
