SPAN 350UE - Advanced Studies in Concepts and Practices of Power: 'Urban Everyday Life in Global Spain'

Description
This course will examine everyday urban life in Spain from the post-Civil War period (1939) to 2019. We will approach cities as dynamic global networks shaped by cultures, politics, economies, demographics, ideologies, memories, and imaginations. Through literary, visual, and theoretical texts, we will explore the in/exclusivity of large-scale urban phenomena such as street design, gentrification, city ordinances, globalization, and mass tourism. From a lesser-known ethnographic angle, we will also bring into dialogue the political power within everyday practices (walking, sitting, purchasing, placemaking) as well as subjects and objects (street venders, immigrants, urban furniture, public transport). Prereq: Two 200-level Spanish courses above SPAN-212.
