It is aimed at students with little or no knowledge of the Iberian Peninsula. The main periods in Spanish cultural history to be emphasised are: Muslim Spain (708-1492); the reigns of the Catholic Kings and Carlos V; the Spanish Golden Age; 19th Century Spanish society and culture; the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939); and democratic Spain (from 1975 onwards). Spanish culture will be studied and discussed from a variety of topics and perspectives, the most relevant being race relations, the role of the Catholic Church in the shaping of Spanish society and culture, militarism, literature as reflection of social reality, nationalism, and contemporary cinema.
