SPAN BC3990 Senior Seminar: Emotions in Modern Spanish Culture. 3 points.

Prerequisites: Prerequisites: Course intended to be taken by all Spanish majors during the fall of their senior year. Third-year bridge course (W3300), and introductory surveys (W3349, W3350).

The Spanish transition from the Ancien Régime to modernity (constitutional government and citizenship, a new class system, changing conceptions of gender and race) involved both the appearance of historically new emotions (beginning with patriotic and romantic love) and the establishment of emotional regimes that regulated allowable and forbidden feelings and practices. We will explore this process through a combination of readings in affect theory and examples of nineteenth-century print culture (literature, journalism, political speech, etc.). Seniors will write papers about related problematics in the context of the cultural production of Spain, from the nineteenth century to the present.
