Catalog Description: SPAN 4434. Topics in Language, Literature, and Culture. Prerequisite: SPAN 3304 and SPAN 3305. An exploration of a period, movement or genre in literature, a topic in culture or language related issue. Topics are chosen for their significance and impact on Hispanic cultures. Course Taught in Spanish. III. Course Description: This course proposes a sample of exemplary works of Spanish literature, moving from the “Generación del 98” to the end of the 20th Century, ending with the inclusion of postmodernism in Spanish Literature. In this course we will focus on themes such as Spanish nationalism, the introduction of European literary and social currents in and outside of Spain, the “españolización” of these influences, and the possibilities of where poetry in Spain may be heading in the 21st Century. In honor of the Year of Perú, we will also see the relationship between one of Perú’s famed poets, César Vallejo, and the Spanish Civil War. IV. Course Objectives: a) to expand knowledge of the Hispanic world and its cultures through literature and the social, economic and political themes developing from it. b) to develop comprehension on how poetic techniques and stylistic features are structured and the impact they have on the reader.4 V. Academic Honesty Statement: Every KSU student is responsible for upholding the provisions of the Student Code of Conduct, as published in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs. Section ii of the Student Code of Conduct addresses the University’s policy on academic honesty, including provisions regarding plagiarism and cheating, unauthorized access to University materials, misrepresentation/falsification of university records or academic work, malicious removal, retention, or destruction of library materials, malicious/intentional misuse of computer facilities and/or services, and misuse of student identification cards. Incidents of alleged academic misconduct will be handled through the established procedures of the University Judiciary Program, which includes either an “informal” resolution by a faculty member, resulting in grade adjustment, or a formal hearing procedure, which may subject a student to the Code of Conduct’s minimum one semester suspension requirement.
