Spend IAP in Madrid studying transatlantic literatures. This innovative subject will allow for study entirely in English or in Spanish.
From naïve Henry James heroines to disillusioned Hemingway heroes, from Lorca in New York to Orwell in Barcelona, from Pablo Neruda to the Abraham Lincoln Brigade to the wild women of Almodóvar; readings, films, field trips to museums and Spanish cities.
Students will live with Spanish families; classes are held at the Instituto Interacional, where you will meet study abroad students from Stanford, B.U., Syracuse, and Spanish students studying American English and American culture.
You will arrive in Madrid on Jan. 3rd for orientation on the 4th. The course runs from Jan. 5th through Jan. 26th with long weekends scheduled for trips.
By petition, this class counts for the HASS-H credit as well as for credit towards the concentration, minor, and major in Literature (21L) and Spanish (21F) Global Studies and Languages.
