Spend IAP in Madrid studying transatlantic literatures. This innovative subject will allow for study entirely in English or in Spanish.

From naive 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 Almodovar; 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 1/3 for orientation on 1/4. The course runs from 1/4 – 1/22 with long weekends scheduled for trips.

This is a regular MIT subject and counts for the HASS-H credit as well as for credit towards the concentration, minor and major in Literature (21L) and Spanish (21G) Global Studies and Languages.
