España Study Abroad

ESPAÑA STUDY ABROAD: MIAMI ESPANA, IDA Y VUELTA

The history of the Spanish-American transatlantic dialogue is both ruinous and enriching. With an emphasis on Miami, this course examines the social and cultural manifestations of this relationship. What impact has Spanish religion, art, and popular tradition had on the Americas from 1492 to the present (ida)? Conversely, what has returned to Spain from Latin America (vuelta)? How specifically has this melange manifested itself in Miami, positioned as the contemporary center of European and Latin American relations?

Reflecting on the sacred (Catholicism, Islam, language, art) and the profane (futbol, tapas, paseo), students will develop unique cultural perspectives based on study and experience. After a semester exploring the Spanish influence on the Americas in Miami, students will spend three weeks in Madrid, Sevilla, and Barcelona studying Spanish culture and searching for American manifestations in Spain. In addition, the class will make day trips to Segovia, Toledo, El Escorial, Sitges, and Montserrat.
