Location & Culture

Seville has its origins in the trade routes controlled by the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC. Romans, Goths, Muslims, and Christians established their capital here before it became the most important city in Southern Europe and gateway to the Americas in the 16th century. The commercial hub of its region, the city preserves many traces of its past and traditions. With 700,000 residents, Seville offers a large variety of cultural activities that range from the Flamenco Biennial and the European Film Festival to alternative theater venues, bars with live music, beautiful streets and open spaces and, of course, one of the most respected bullrings in the world.

Literary and Cultural Traditions in Spanish-Speaking Communities
Language, literature, as well as culture in general, constitute the key aspects of the identity of peoples; it is for this reason that, in order to learn a foreign language, having knowledge of the culture associated with it also gains relevance: knowing who, what, when and why ( in terms of political, religious, education-related, historical, geographical, etc. issues), knowing about (events, developments, and social concerns), as well as knowing how (that same society acts, speaks, and manifests itself).

Literature and Cookery: Reading, Writing, Cooking, and Eating
This course is designed as a way to approach the world of cooking and food through literature in different periods throughout history. It is not intended to cover all aspects of Spanish cooking, but rather as a humble appetizer that should whet the appetite for the great banquet of literature in its relation to food, cooking, and gastronomy.

Finally, consideration is given to less usual—or indirect and, therefore, more persuasive – manifestations of propaganda as seen especially in the form of cinema and literature, comic books, and TV series.

Flamenco will be broached as a cultural phenomenon in its widest sense; i.e., taking into account the dimensions that link it with music, social interaction, and communication, as well as its displaying of itself as lyricism, while not forgetting its links with contexts related to work, ritual, and festive occasions. As a result of this approach, Flamenco is viewed as a manifestation which goes beyond the strictly artistic, while possessing the capacity to generate social identity, in the case of Andalucía, on the basis of ethnic factors, but not exclusively so.

As the Course develops, reflection upon the idea of Europe will be encouraged, as well as upon how to approach this same historical process from the perspective of the Social Sciences and Historiography, upon its evolution, upon the study of its instititutional make-up, and upon the existing links between Spain and Europe. With this basis in mind, the aim is to enable students:to reflect critically upon the key issues involved in the process of European construction;to acquire an understanding of, and be capable of analyzing, with rigor, the circumstances affecting this same process at the present time;to become aware of the values upon which the foundations of European construction are based.

Women in the History of Latin America
The aim of this Course is the study of the role of women during the different stages of the history of Latin America, using as a point of departure the Continent’s indigenous cultures, already in existence prior to any European presence, and on through the colonial period into the first republican phase, until the twenty-first century is reached. Within this overarching timeline, the set objective, by means of a careful selection of topics, is to provide an overview of the circumstances and experiences of women in a range of spatial and temporal contexts, while analyzing their involvement in different social environments within a multiethnic and multicultural context such as that of Latin America. In this way, what is registered is an awareness of, as well as an appreciation of, the trajectory of such women as historical agents, thus counteracting both the subordinate position and the invisibility to which they have been condemned, not only on the part of hegemonic patriarchy, but also by historiography itself. Finally, the aim of this Course is to encourage a critical mind-set capable of extricating the role of Latin American women from a range of ethnic and cultural strata so as to advocate their contribution to History
