Survey of literary and cultural contexts of 20th and 21st century Spain. Examination of literary genres in connection with concurrent cultural and historical events. Exploration of literature as a reflection of the experiences and events meaningful to Spanish society during this time period. Emphasis on the ways in which literature and other cultural artifacts give voice to value systems, traditions, and beliefs.

COURSE JUSTIFICATION: This course is the third of a three-part survey of the literary and cultural-historical traditions of Spain. The new survey courses, reorganized in the revised undergraduate Spanish curriculum, anchor literature in its cultural, social, and historical contexts, exploring the ways in which cultural practices and perspectives give shape to literary traditions, and vice versa. Undergraduate Spanish majors need to acquire an understanding and appreciation of the interrelationship between language and culture, and literature as an integral cultural product, to complement their growing oral and written proficiency in the Spanish language. FLS 343 surveys the literature and culture of Spain during the 20th century until the present.
