                                              Spanish 121 is designed for students who have some prior experience in Spanish. It is an intensive elementary-level language course that in one semester covers the material studied over two semesters in our Spanish 110 and Spanish 120. The course provides a quick-paced review of material normally covered in a first-semester Spanish course and then proceeds to introduce new material so students will be prepared to take Spanish 130 during the subsequent semester. As in other Spanish courses, Spanish 121 emphasizes the development of foundational listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills while exploring the rich cultural mosaic of the Spanish-speaking world. Through listening activities and mini documentaries shown in class, students will develop their aural and oral skills at the same time that they will become familiarized with different varieties of standard spoken Spanish. Students will be given ample opportunties to practice orally and in writing so that they can reinforce newly acquired vocabulary adn linguistic structures. Readings focused on a specific country or region, visual items (such as maps, photos adn films) and a class project will advance students' knowledge of Hispanic cultural practices and products while increasing their intercultural competence. Conducted entirely in Spanish, this class will provide you with guided practice before moving to more independent and spontaneous language production. You will participate in paired, small-group and whole-class activities that simulate real-life situations that will help you gain confidence communicating in Spanish. Goals: By the end of this course students can expect to handle a variety of day-to-day situations in a Spanish-speaking setting such as: 1) Introduce themselves, use greetings, describe people, places and things, give instructions, tell time, go shopping, order meals in a restaurant, and make travel plans. 2) Talk about themselves, families, and friends regarding academic life, daily routines, health, work, leisure, and preferences (using the present and past tenses). 3) Use the cultural information learned in class as an icebreaker to find common ground with a wide variety of Spanish speakers.

Students will be expected to participate in classroom activities such as role-plays based on everyday situations that they may encounter at work settings such as doctors' offices, clinics, hospitals, and emergency rooms in order to develop meaningful and accurate communication skills in the target language. Students will also review and acquire other essential tools of communication in the target language applicable both within and outside the medical field. Major course goals include: the acquisition of intermediate-level vocabulary, the controlled use of the past tense, and the development of writing skills at a paragraph level with transitions. Students who have already taken Spanish 130 will not receive credit for Spanish 135. Although these courses have different numbers, they are at the same level. Students who have already fulfilled the language requirement (AP, SAT II, etc.) or have taken courses at the 200- and 300-level may not take basic-level language courses (100-level courses) in the same language. They will not receive credit for this course (Spanish 135).

It provides an introduction to the theory and practice of translating between English and Spanish, addressing important topics such as discourse strategies, register and mood, dialect, genre, and cultural norms linked to written and oral communication. This is a very writing-intensive class, both in and out of the classroom. There are assinged readings from the textbooks and/or assignments online for every class meeting, which will be used to discuss both the practicalities and the cultural implications of translation. Class meetings will consist of class discussions about translation in general, and critiques of your own translation efforts in particular, combined with small group or pair work on translation exercises. While there will necessarily be some use of English, the class is conducted primarily in Spanish.

Special attention will be paid to the political, cultural, and social discourses that the films reproduce, adapt or question. This will allow an understanding of the implicit or explicit social dialogues that shaped cinematographic production in Spain from the post-civil war years, through Franco’s dictatorship, the advent of the democratic state in the 1970’s, and the economic and political crises of the 21st century. At the same time, films will be analyzed from the standpoint of their rhetoric construction, examining the specificity of cinematic language and its particular uses in each case.

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc In this class we will ask how animals – as characters, narrators, and tropes in literature – shed light on major philosophical and ethical questions: What makes us human? Where do the privileges and protections afforded to our fellow human beings end? How do we attend to the non-human world and attempt to understand perspectives different form our own? We will consider not only how representations of animals and animality challenge anthropocentric world views but also how they play into discourses of class, race, gender, sexuality, colonialism, civilization, state power, and civil rights in Latin America. Readings will be drawn primarily from twentieth-century Latin American literature and will include the works of Horacio Quiroga, Clarice Lispector, Jorge L. Borges, Manuel Puig, and João Guimarães Rosa among others. Course requirements include short written assignments, quizzes, an oral presentation, and a final paper. This class will be conducted in Spanish.

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc This course will examine the figures of conspiracy and complot in a series of Latin American shorts stories and novels of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. These ideas have been central to both political theory and literature. The image of a small group of individuals who secretly act to change the world order seduces the public imagination. Latin American writers have not been oblivious to this trend, and some of the more representative novelists have used it in order to represent, analyze, and criticize not only their societies, but also the literary and artistic milieus where they perform their creative practices. We will read political fictions, artist’s novels, detective, and spy narrations, among other genres.

What distinguishes this literature from that which was written earlier or later or outside Latin America? Who were the major writers of the boom generation, and what unites or separates them? In this course we will consider these questions as we read important works of fiction by Cortázar, Donoso, Fuentes, García Márquez, and Vargas Llosa as well as criticism that sheds light on the phenomenon of the boom. This class will be conducted in Spanish.

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc In this class, we will examine Latin American texts from a wide range of genres and media (including graphic novels, films, and the visual arts,) created in or about dictatorships. We will ask how experiences of oppression, violence, and censorship shape the daily life, consciousness, and memory of those living under repressive regimes. What possibilities and limitations does literature (and art more generally) present as a means of expressing trauma and resisting tyranny? Though we will focus primarily on representations of the dictatorships in the Southern Cone in the second half of the twentieth century, we will draw on texts from a variety of national traditions and historical periods to better understand the continuities and differences among the forms that state repression and violence has taken in Latin America as well as the range of responses available to writers and artists. Course requirements include short written assignments, quizzes, an oral presentation, and a final research project.

By designing a content-based syllabus, including selecting and sequencing of reading materials and choosing the appropriate learning outcomes and assessment methods, graduate students will gain a greater awareness of curricular planning and development and acquire skills that will significantly ease their future teaching endeavors such as using a backward design model, incorporating their own research interests into their lessons and courses, or taking advantage of the resources available to language learners on campus. By the end of the course, graduate students will be able to talk about and reflect on their teaching in an effective and professional manner.
