Salamanca, Spain

Program Description

This course will be a study of the major writers and intellectuals that are part of the generation known as the Generation of ’98. This generation emerged from the national conflict produced in Spain as a consequence of the defeat in the Spanish American War (1898). We will read, analyze and discuss works specially from one of the major representatives of the generation: Miguel de Unamuno (1864-1936). We will study some of his most important works as well as the related theory while discussing his commitment to the cultural and aesthetic renewal of Spain. Unamuno was the director of the Universidad de Salamanca when he died in his Salamanca home in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). During the study-abroad component of the course, students will be able to explore the same spaces as Unamuno and learn about his intelectual influence in Spain today.

This study abroad will be open to Honors and non-Honors students.
