P. Keller.

Designed to explore different visual representations of contemporary Spain through the threefold lens of cinematic, photographic, and literary perspectives.  Surveying various texts from the early 20th century to the present–Lorca, Buñuel, Tusquets, Saura, Fontcuberta, Espaliú, Martínez de Pisón, García Rodero, to name a few–the course explores the continuities and discontinuities in visualizing Spain’s cultural landscapes and seeks to examine the relationship between the moving image, the still one, and the written word in and among those visualizations.  Readings, writing assignments, and class discussion are all conducted in Spanish.
