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).

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc "Generation of '98" is the name used to bring together a group of Spanish writers, essayists and poets that were profoundly affected by the moral, social and political crisis in Spain caused by the military defeat against the US and which meant the loss of Cuba, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Philippines in 1898. The shock of Spain’s defeat in the war, which left it stripped of the last vestiges of its empire and its international prestige, provided an impetus for many writers and thinkers to embark on a period of self-searching and an analysis of Spain’s problems and its destiny. Novelists, poets, essayists, playwrights and thinkers such as Miguel de Unamuno, Antonio Machado, Azorin, Ramiro de Maeztu, Valle-Inclan, Ganivet, and Pio Baroja reinvigorated Spanish letters and restored Spain to a position of intellectual and literary prominence that it had not held for centuries. Some of the topics covered in this course will include Spanish nationalism and the identification of Spain with Castile, regionalisms, the crisis of Spain, tradition and reform, religion, Spain in the world, etc. This class will be conducted in Spanish.

The images of immigrants, tourists, and vagabonds will guide our analysis of some of the new trends and topics in Spanish Film. We will first analyze some of the representations of immigration that have emerged in Spanish Cinema since the end of the 20th century. In the context of the financial crisis that hit Spain hard after 2008 (and other previous crises), we will also explore the characterization of a variety of “vagabonds”. And lastly, and as a counterpoint to these previous ways of looking at Otherness, we will also consider various representations of the tourist, a more privileged vantage point. The course is mainly a survey of Contemporary Spanish Cinema, and its aim is to introduce students to the study of cinema, as well as make them familiar with the linguistic and theoretical tools employed in the study of film in general. We will study the works of directors such as Fernando León de Aranoa, Montxo Armendáriz, Icíar Bollaín, Chus Gutiérrez, Jesús Ponce, and Toni Bestard, among others. The course will be conducted entirely 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.

After fifty years of internal armed conflict, the government and the oldest communist guerrilla in the world signed a peace agreement. However, in a surprising result, voters rejected the treaty in a public referendum. How does one explain these simultaneous longing for peace and will to continue war? This seminar will explore the particularities of the Colombian case through narrative and movies, combining different theoretical approaches, from postcolonialism to gender studies, but focusing on the relationship between literature, cultural productions, and political history and theory. We will analyze the causes and effects of the persistent violence in the country, the emergence of guerrillas, the rise of narco ‘capos’, the ‘guerra sucia’ against progressive political parties --and the constant struggle of the Colombian people to overcome this history of violence, and to build a more inclusive and democratic country. This class will be conducted in Spanish.

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.

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc Cities exist not just in their geography, but in their spirit, and that spirit is captured in literature. In this course we will read compelling works from Mexico City, Lima, and Buenos Aires that represent life in these Latin American capitals at different points between 1950 and the present. As we explore fiction and non-fiction writing by established authors (including Fuentes, Poniatowska, Vargas Llosa, Ribeyro, and Aira) and emerging writers (including Luiselli, Enríquez, and Alarcón), we will learn about the forces and events that have shaped narratives of the urban experience in Latin America. 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 During the second half of the XIX C. the received paradigms of science underwent monumental shifts. These shifts, coupled to numerous evolutionary advances in established fields of study, the creations of vast new fields of research, and the constant progress of technology had the effect of challenging traditional conceptions of the universe and humans’ role in it. The conceptual revolutions that followed had a profound effect in the schema of the philosophers, writers, and poets of the age who were forced to grapple with the ontological and epistemological implications entailed by these new, and sometimes strange, worldviews. This course intends to study the ways in which Spanish American writers and thinkers dealt with the new understanding and the paradigm shifts implied by the advancements in science. In the process, we will examine the manner in which literature can become a space for strict scientific and philosophical disquisitions, the role that scientific theories can play in literary discourse, the way in which the historical and sociological developments of science are perceived by writers, and the different attitudes that said writers adopt towards science. Finally, class discourse will include an introduction on the ways in which the electronic revolution has affected artistic creation and the writer’s perception of human life. 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 addition to having generated a rich corpus of literature and film, the Cuban Revolution lies at the epicenter of what remain urgent questions surrounding the relationship between art and politics: What makes art revolutionary? How do literature, film, and photography contribute to the telling of history, the formation of ideology, and the idolization of political figures? What responsibility do writers, filmmakers, and artists have to engage with politics, and what freedoms must they be afforded in order to be effective agents of critique? These are some of the questions we will tackle as we analyze Cuban literature and film created on the island and abroad over the last sixty years. Course requirements include short written assignments, quizzes, an oral presentation, and a final research paper. This course 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 Current sociological theory maintains that identities, like meanings of utterances in a conversation, are not fixed and unchanging. Rather, they are socially constructed, negotiated through our interactions with others in the world around us. This course will explore such constructions in an attempt to elucidate just a few of the many layers of experience that contribute to the conception of a “Latin American” identity, in both social and personal terms. We will study a variety of sources of literary, cultural and academic origins that theorize, identify and exemplify various means of expressing or manifesting identity, including religion, gender, family, ethnicity, nationality or citizenship, and even language and traditions. The goals of this course are to increase students’ understanding of regional and sociocultural differences in the Hispanic world and to enable them to theorize and analyze identity construction in general, and constituted Hispanic identities in particular. In the process, they may come away with a deeper understanding of and appreciation for both Hispanic and their own respective cultures. They will also develop and improve communication skills through cooperative group work, expressing their ideas clearly in written and spoken Spanish. This course is 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 MLA seminar combines a reading of Cervantes’ novel with an exploration of the extensive attempts to illustrate this celebrated 17th-century work of fiction and adapt it to cinema and the performing arts. Following a four-week introduction, overview and reading of the novel, the seminar turns to illustrations from early woodcuts and engravings to modern graphic novels and book sketches, including the works of French, English, Argentine, and Spanish artists such as Gustave Doré, Albert Dubout, Louis Jou, Luis Scafati, Bernard Buffet, and Salvador Dalí. The latter part of the course investigates many of the 160 cinematic adaptations from feature-length films to cartoons, shorts, sequels, and spinoffs; we examine the early musical adaptations such as G.W. Pabst 1936 operatic feature-length film; Ub Iwerks and Francisco Delgado’s animated shorts; Orson Welles and Terry Gilliam frustrated attempts to bring Don Quixote to the screen; Soviet adaptations including Grigori Kozintsev’s Don Kishot and Albert’s Serra’s minimalistic Catalan Honor de the Knights. The seminar is taught in English. All required readings will be in English although students with a knowledge of Spanish will be encouraged to read the text in its original form.

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.

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc As Cervantes looked toward the prevailing genres of the late medieval and early modern past to create his characters and to plot their adventures, we will look toward the way the Don Quixote was subsequently recreated, recast, adapted, remediated, and rearticulated by readers, editors, illustrators, musicians, song writers, and filmmakers following the novel’s publication in the early 17th century. By looking for don Quixote “back and forth” the seminar hopes to lay bare the highly participatory engagement that accounts for the novel’s phenomenal success over the ages. The seminar combines an initial reading of Don Quixote (first four weeks) with subsequent sessions dedicated to overviews of illustrators (Doré, Scafati, Dubout, Rep, Jou...), cinematic adaptations (Pabst, Gil, Escrivá, Gavaldón, Kovinstev, Hiller, Welles, Yates, Serra, Gilliam...), musical and operatic commemorations (Massenet...), literary sequels and representations (novels, short stories, versified versions...), tourism (“la ruta de don Quijote...”), video games, commemorations (statues and monuments), and commercial paraphrenia (Don Quixote mugs, plates, keychains...). The course is taught in English, but all participants must have a reading knowledge of Spanish; many articles, films, and primary sources are not available in translation. Seminar requirements include weekly participation, two in-class presentations, and a final research paper.

See the Spanish Department's website for the current offerings. https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc This course will focus on leading critical issues pertaining to literary and cultural studies today. One emphasis will be on clarifying paradigms as much as possible, outlining their historical evolvement through various spheres of dissemination and codification in the 20th and 21st centuries. The course will then trace Latin American theoretical production within these strands and debates, leading to some analysis of specific literary and cultural texts. The list of issues and questions will include the following: Mappings and Periodization: How do current notions of World Literature, New Republic of Letters, Coloniality, Transatlantic, Queer Theory and Affect Theory, among others, address the current moment of disciplinary articulation and dispersal. Textual Revolution and Latin American Modernisms: How does the concept of modern literature unfold from structuralist and post-structuralist modes of close reading and understanding? Do differing Latin American modernist and Caribbean Poetics constructs respond and challenge this tradition? Neoliberalism, Culture and Citizenry. Is there such a thing as a neoliberal aesthetic? Can it be studied critically? Does post-autonomy literature play a role in it? Postcolonial and Subalternity. Are the profound differences between the British and Hispanic legacies of colonialism in the Americas highlighted or erased through these discourses? What are the claims of diasporic, post-nationalist and post-humanist forms of writing and reading? Performativity. What are the key notions surrounding this general trope, from speech acts to gender theory, as well as the idea of creativity, autobiography and culture brokering prevalent in the pull towards techno-mediatic globalization and cultural studies? What is the work of literature and digital humanities in this sphere?

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc This seminar will explore the intersection of a macro-politics of neoliberalism -its historical genealogy, geopolitical tensions, crises, opposing macro-political systems- and an “existential” dimension of neoliberalism -its capacity to create ways of life, subjectivity-. We will look at the Iberian case in connection with global trends, particularly in relation with recent historical developments in Latin America and the Mediterranean region (we will jump back and forth around the sequence of the economic crises of the 21st century, the attempts at “progressive” government, the waves of social movements of 2011 and further). We will also pay particular attention to the dynamics of hyper-codification, desensitization, instrumentalization, and quantification that neoliberalism imposes on life, and to the aesthetic consequences and and ressistances that are opened by this imposition. Feminist practice and thought, experimental poetry and narrative, anti-capitalist activism and theory will be some of the foci of our research.

We will be concerned with tracking major debates in this tradition (the indigenous and agrarian questions, the transition from feudalism to capitalism, foquismo, dependency, among others), as well with evaluating the specific contributions of Latin America to Marxist thought more generally. From the vantage of the present, we will also engage ongoing attempts to rethink the relevance of Marxism in the region.

It proposes to hone the student's handling of writing as a vehicle for the expression of intellectual thought, but also to develop a consciousness of the rhetorical strategies that can be used to advance a critical argument effectively. Extensive writing exercises will be assigned; these will be followed by intense and multiple redactions of the work originally produced. The ulitmate goal is to make students develop precision, correctness, and elegance in written Spanish. Students will also work on a class paper written previously, with a view to learning the process of transforming a short, limited expression of an argument into a publishable article.
