SPAN-246 Sym: Catalan Culture/Society (in English)
Spring for 2015-2016
Laura Vilardell
Ferran Adrià, Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró or Antoni Gaudí are some of the names that have spread Catalan culture around the world, a singular culture
whose people elevates human towers called Castellers and beats a log with a stick to get presents on Christmas eve.

Through readings (both electronic and hard copy), audiovisual materials, guest and student presentations the course will cover the politics, sociolinguistic situation, visual arts, history, geography, and gastronomy of the Catalan speaking regions. No knowledge of Spanish or Catalan required as the course is taught in English.
