SPAN 246 - Catalan Culture/Society
Ferran Adrià, Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró or Antoni Gaudí are some of the names that have spread Catalan culture around the world, a singular culture 
whose people elevate human towers called Castellers and beat a log with a stick to get presents on Christmas eve.

Through readings (both electronic and hard copy), audiovisual materials, guest and student presentations, the course covers sociopolitical and historical aspects of the Catalan speaking regions, from the sociolinguistic situation to visual arts, history, geography and gastronomy. 

This course is taught in English and satisfies the FS/CULP Humanities, SFS/RCST Western Europe, College/SFS/European Stud Cert and HALC requirements. It has the HALC, Humanities: Arts, Literatures, and Cultures attributes.
