SPN 314H : SPECIAL TOPICS IN HISPANIC STUDIES

This course aims to provide students with the fundamental knowledge to understand the African Migration in the Mediterranean with a specific focus on Spain. Through the study of a broad variety of scholarly articles, movies and documentaries we will address questions regarding borders, identity, political and ethical issues that migration poses. The selection of texts and audio-visual materials encourages students to explore the phenomena of migration under the perspective of migrant subjects and to link it with other geographies. It will help us to think how social images about Africa were constructed through a Eurocentric lens between the twentieth and the twenty-first centuries. Classes will be taught in English and will include lectures, discussions, audio-visual material, students’ presentations and a final research project.
