The Stories of Spain: Texts and Contexts - SPAN3671

Year - 2019

This unit, open to specialists and non-specialists, looks specifically at the types of stories being told in Contemporary Spain and investigates why they are of interest now. It also looks at the developmental nature of narrative. A selection of filmic and literary texts will be studied from different eras though the main focus will be on late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. The texts will be supported with outside readings to make the stories told relevant to a present-day student.
