Rebellion and Change - SPN325

This unit extends the abilities of students of Spanish at an advanced level by examining the social and political movements that have shaped the development of Spain and Latin America. The course looks at literary and artistic representations of key “rebellious” historical moments that sought and continue to seek change and social justice, especially in terms of class, ethnicity, race, gender, sexual practices, environmental issues, regional versus globalising programmes, neoliberal and neo-colonial trends, among others. It is expected that students learn about the synergy of the Hispanic world and become inspired to embark on further research on the topics discussed. The course may focus on a specific region, genre, or theme throughout the semester in order to develop deeper knowledge on certain aspects or issues that may well be put in contrast with the global and Australian contexts.
