Description

Elective Course
This course explores the combined study of manifestations of visual culture such as television series and films, and texts such as short stories and poems with a view towards understanding contemporary Latin American and Spanish societies and improving students’ level of Spanish. Texts are contextualized within their socio-historical milieux and topics are selected with a view towards gender and ethnic balance. Classes are organized thematically to allow for the combined study and comparison of texts created in different media. The course follows a CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) approach and Spanish is the medium of instruction.
