Description of Program:
The purpose of this course is to study the crossing of art and cultures
in Andalucía in the cities of Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada.
Here, different cultures: Arab, Jewish and Christian coexisted -
peacefully or contentiously? – there are different opinions
– following the Moorish invasions of CE 711. Regardless, those
centuries of Andalucían history of cultures testing each
other left a rich legacy of in art, architechture, historical sights,
language and most of all: a contemporary, vibrant Andalucían
culture in which somehow all these historical influencies find their
expresssion. We will tour Andalucía’s three main cities
of Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada (beginning in Madrid and with an
excursion to Motril by the Mediterranean) to try to understand how
culture affects art, how one culture seeks one expression, and another
culture a different exppression. In other words: how does art send
signals about meaning and value? See itinerary below for travel
details. Total program costs: approx. $3500 (excluding most meals).
Course requirements: This is a graded course. Preparatory meetings
during spring semester 2009, Research paper and Travel Journal following
trip. See instructor for specific details. No Spanish language requirement.
