SPN 340 Nation and Identity in Spanish Theater: 1788-1931

Canonical dramas, tragedies and comedies illuminate stasis, change and conflict in Spanish society across three centuries. Discussion of the plays focuses on the individual's struggle for rights against the reassertion of traditional social mores with a focus on gender identity.  Embedded grammar instruction includes close reading of text, frequent writing, and live theater performance by students for oral practice.
