The Spanish Civil War in Visual Culture

HISP 1290U S01 [CRN: 26054]

No other event marked contemporary Spain as profoundly as the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). This course will study the history of the war itself and trace the multiple ways it has been remembered and represented from its immediate aftermath through to the present. Materials will include films and documentaries, paintings and photography, propaganda posters and newsreels, radio and television, monuments and comics, oral histories and fiction. In addition, we will read critical and theoretical texts on historical trauma and individual and collective memory as well as amnesia. This course will be conducted in Spanish. WRIT
