The New Spain:1977-Present


Final Portfolio

Each of you will choose a topic you would like to research throughout the semester. The final project for the class is a portfolio of that research with a two-page overview of your topic that shows how the research you have done has shaped your thoughts on the subject. There will be times in class when we discuss each student’s ongoing research. In the past students have chosen topics ranging from changes in post-Franco Spain regarding gender politics, clean-energy policy, theater, art, the economy, fashion, the church, etc. I want this class to give each of you the opportunity to study something that truly interests you. When there are be significant viewing requirements in the evening, we will not have class that day.
