Module Description:

Taught in Spanish, this module provides you (if you have A-level Spanish equivalent) with the opportunity to engage with the target language through a range of key cultural and literary texts. It introduces you to different aspects of Spanish and Latin American studies by focusing on history, culture, politics, arts and society.

On completion of the course, students should be able to engage critically with key events of the Spanish-speaking world and identify its historical, geographical and cultural diversity.

The central theme of this course will be the ways in which works of art either contribute or subvert the formation of the Spanish empire from the late fifteenth century to the eighteenth century. There will be an emphasis on the relations between politics, religion, race and the visual form. Primary texts to be examined will include the works by Spanish and Mexican painters: Diego Velzquez (1599-1660), Juan de Pareja (c.1606-1670), Francisco de Goya (1746-1828) and Juan Rodrguez Jurez (1675-1728).

Description:

This module will equip you with key study skills to enable you to perform independent critical and scholarly work in your subsequent years of study. Areas of skills addressed include class preparation and note taking, using the library and other subject-specific resources, as well as building up academic writing skills through a variety of assessments such as an annotated bibliography and a critical review. These skills are implemented through the study of a range of key cultural concepts and artefacts, which this year will
