The City of Palimpsest in Latin America And/Or Spain

Great cities such as Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Mexico City or Sevilla can be "read" as living, multi-layered (con)texts which have been written over again and again across the dimensions of time and cultural diversity. Focusing on a given major city, this course reads its urban palimpsest-its successive yet coexisting cultural accumulations-through its literature, architecture, music, visual arts and film. PREREQ: ESPA 2005. Students may not retain credit for both ESPA 3126 and ESPA 4126. (lec 3) cr 3
