As in other Spanish courses, Spanish 121 emphasizes the development of foundational listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills while exploring the rich cultural mosaic of the Spanish-speaking world. Through listening activities and mini documentaries shown in class, students will develop their aural and oral skills at the same time that they will become familiarized with different varieties of standard spoken Spanish. Students will be given ample opportunities to practice orally and in writing so that they can reinforce newly acquired vocabulary and linguistic structures. Readings focused on a specific country or region, visual items (such as maps, photos and films) and a class project will advance students' knowledge of Hispanic cultural practices and products while increasing their intercultural competence. Conducted entirely in Spanish, this class will provide you with guided practice before moving to more independent and spontaneous language production. You will participate in paired, small-group and whole-class activities that simulate real-life situations that will help you gain confidence communicating in Spanish. Goals: By the end of this course students can expect to handle a variety of day-to-day situations in a Spanish-speaking setting such as: 1) Introduce themselves, use greetings, describe people, places and things, give instructions, tell time, go shopping, order meals in a restaurant, and make travel plans. 2) Talk about themselves, families, and friends regarding academic life, daily routines, health, work, leisure, and preferences (using the present and past tenses). 3) Use the cultural information learned in class as an icebreaker to find common ground with a wide variety of Spanish speakers. Non-course prerequisite: A score of 380-440 on the SAT II or 285-383 on the online placement examination. Course is available to Freshmen and Upperclassmen.Attendance At First Class Mandatory https://pennintouchdaemon.apps.upenn.edu/pennInTouchProdDaemon/jsp/fast.do?webService=syllabus&term=2021C&course=SPAN121305

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc Colombia has recently become a case of international interest. After fifty years of internal armed conflict, the government and the oldest communist guerrilla in the world signed a peace agreement. However, in a surprising result, voters rejected the treaty in a public referendum. How does one explain these simultaneous longing for peace and will to continue war? This seminar will explore the particularities of the Colombian case through narrative and movies, combining different theoretical approaches, from postcolonialism to gender studies, but focusing on the relationship between literature, cultural productions, and political history and theory. We will analyze the causes and effects of the persistent violence in the country, the emergence of guerrillas, the rise of narco ‘capos’, the ‘guerra sucia’ against progressive political parties --and the constant struggle of the Colombian people to overcome this history of violence, and to build a more inclusive and democratic country. This class will be conducted in Spanish. LALS396401 https://pennintouchdaemon.apps.upenn.edu/pennInTouchProdDaemon/jsp/fast.do?webService=syllabus&term=2021C&course=SPAN390401

In this course, students will combine the analysis of literary, cinematic, musical, visual and performative works with the study of historical, political and sociocultural processes shaping the existence of Afro-descendants. The scrutiny of systemic racial exclusion and marginalization will allow the understanding of how these dividing practices condition cultural production. Close readings and thorough debates will engage students into a consistent deconstruction of the idea of blackness in the Americas.

The course attempts to establish a point of departure from which more in-depth studies on Latin American cultures can proceed. The course will focus on five critical moments in Latin American history. 1) The "invention" of Latin America; 2) The Latin American independence wars; 3) US and the Cold War in Latin America; 4) Neoliberalism in Latin America; and 5) Latin America in the Global Context.

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc This course focuses on Latin American literature and film of the last half-century in which characters and storytellers grapple with questions related to ethnographic theory and practice: To what degree can an outsider understand another culture and what degree of cultural immersion is necessary for the ethnographer to produce an “authentic” account? What epistemological and ethical challenges accompany the project of cultural translation? How does one avoid the pitfalls of ethnocentrism, primitivism, and othering? How much agency and control do ethnographic subjects have when it comes to how they are portrayed? What are the challenges of “auto-ethnography,” and what degree of mediation is inevitable? What roles do language and narrative conventions play in shaping intercultural encounters? We will work through these questions by way of close analysis of a wide range of texts, including testimonio, experimental fiction, and hybrid documentaries.

We will ask after the specificities of Latin American Marxist thought (on the land and indigenous questions, dependency, guerrilla warfare, etc), at the same time as we contextualize those specificities within a wider Marxist tradition. We will also inquire into the waning and resurgence of Marxism in recent decades in the region. This course is conducted entirely in Spanish. LALS398401

Please see the Spanish Department's website for the current course description: https://www.sas.upenn.edu/hispanic-portuguese-studies/pc This course explores the place of Latin American cultural production in the environmental humanities. Latin American literature has a long and complicated relationship with the natural world, at times imagining it at the core of national and regional identity and at times figuring it as a dangerous wasteland to be “civilized.” We will focus on texts that grapple with this heritage but attempt to carve out a different approach, texts which contest the logic of development by examining its costs and foregrounding interconnections between human and non-human life. Reading literary and visual texts alongside the work of activists and ecocritical scholars, we will examine the connections between environmentalist arguments and critiques of coloniality, capitalism, and patriarchy. We will ask both what unique advantages literature and art have when it comes to imagining alternatives to systems based on extractivism and domination and what inherent limitations Western art forms face when it comes to representing non-human perspectives or communicating knowledge of the natural world rooted in Amerindian or African Diasporic cultures.

By designing a content-based syllabus, including selecting and sequencing of reading materials and choosing the appropriate learning outcomes and assessment methods, graduate students will gain a greater awareness of curricular planning and development and acquire skills that will significantly ease their future teaching endeavors such as using a backward design model, incorporating their own research interests into their lessons and courses, or taking advantage of the resources available to language learners on campus.
