From its role as the crucible of the international avant-garde, to its genesis of political art and writing, to its Civil War that ignited the artistic passion of authors around the world, to the exuberant liberation after 40 years of dictatorship, Spain deeply influenced our understanding of contemporary culture. Films, readings, field trips to museums, and visits to Spanish cultural sites will enable students to understand the full context in which today’s vibrant Spanish democracy and internationally acclaimed artistic production emerged. Students live in homestays with Spanish families. All families are fully vaccinated. Classes are held at the Instituto Internacional (above), a vibrant, historical, American/Spanish cultural and university center in the heart of Madrid with an excellent library, café, garden and wifi. An evening reception with the MIT alums who live in Spain provides great conversation and invaluable networking. This 9-unit subject (3-3-3) will count for HASS credit and the Literature concentration, minor or major. For students who know Spanish, the readings are all presented in a bilingual reader and they may choose to write papers in Spanish or in English. However, Spanish is not a prerequisite for this subject and most students complete the reading and writing assignments in English and the course is given in English.
APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE AT INFO SESSION OR AT 14N-333 FROM NOV. 5TH ONWARDS…
