SPN 352 - La Generacion del 98 (The Generation of 98)


Prerequisites: Placement by examination or successful completion (C- or higher) of the appropriate Intermediate Language II course. As is the rule of most 300 and above courses, this course will be taught mainly in the target language
As a result of the Spanish - American War Era of 1898, Spain lost its last overseas Colonies. That embarrassing defeat gave rise to a multitude of discussions by Spain’s intellectuals who saw the “Spanish Problem” as extremely serious. They turned within themselves to try to rediscover and revive the spirit that had made Spain great. The result was a new movement that became known as the Generation 98. The course will emphasize the works of the major philosophers, poets, novelists, and briefly touch on other architectural, musical, and artistic expressions.
