Cuenca, Spain

Program Description

This course abroad offers an overview of the heterogeneous cultural landscape of Spain through an interdisciplinary approach to its history. We will pay special attention to the on-site study of the conflict between two antagonistic national projects: one that understands Spain as a homogeneous entity and one that advocates for a plural conception of the country. The former has been historically based on authoritarian forms of government, the Catholic faith, and centralistic culture, while the latter emphasizes a liberal government, tolerance, and cultural diversity. To study these issues, we will devote a large portion of class time to field trips within Cuenca and its neighboring regions and cities such as Madrid, Toledo, and Valencia among the others.
