SPN 346 - 20th Century Spain: 1939 to the Present

Description
This course is dedicated to the study of the exciting revitalization of today’s Spanish society following the repression of the postwar years. It will trace the various faces of that revolution of Spanish culture when the Spaniards decided to forget the war and the desperate state of Spain and focus on new forms of artistic expression. The course will also examine the relationships among different forms of art during that period (e.g. the surrealist style in Spanish cinema, as well as in painting and in music). It will present the two major tendencies among the intellectuals of the time: those who had an inclination toward social protest and those who manifested and attitude of avoidance of the Spanish reality and produced works of universal significance.
