    OVERVIEW

    The course is intended for students on the degree course in Modern Languages and Cultures (2nd year - 9 CFU) and students from other humanities degree courses who have included it in their syllabus.

     It consists of 54 annual hours of face-to-face lectures.

    Fraction A is taught in Italian and is intended for Humanities students, and for Language students who have not yet reached an adequate level of comprehension of Spanish.

    The participation of Language students in either the A (Italian) or the B (Spanish) fraction will be at the student's discretion.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aims to provide a general overlook on the main critical and historical methodologies to deal with the History of Spanish Literature, leading students to experience deep and aware ways of reading the texts of the Spanish canon.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    This course is meant to provide students with an overview of the literary and cultural movements that swept Spain from the Bourbon Restoration (1875) to the actuality. Considering the very close connections between political and literary history in 20th century Spain, part of the course will be on the main historical events of this period: the Cuban War of Independence, The Spanish Civil War, the Franco period and the Democratic Transition.

    At the end of the course, the student will know how to read, contextualise and relate a Spanish literary text and the historical-cultural environment in which it was generated. 

    PREREQUISITES

    The course, bibliography and examination will be entirely in Italian. Knowledge of Spanish is therefore not required.

    TEACHING METHODS

    54 hours of lectures spread over the course of the year. These will be divided into 36 hours in the first semester, held by Prof. Marco Succio, and 18 hours in the second semester borrowed from the Spanish Literature and Culture III course.

    Attendance is not compulsory but strongly recommended.

    Students who have regularly filed a certification of disability, DSA or other special educational needs are advised to contact both the contact person Prof. Sara Dickinson (sara.dickinson@unige.it) and the lecturer [or teacher] at the beginning of the course, in order to agree on teaching and examination methods that, while respecting the teaching objectives, take into account individual learning methods and provide suitable compensatory tools.
