  ENG 302 Travel Writing (W2)

  Dr. Kevin Swafford

Spanish poet Antonio Machado once wrote that “Every city has its own charm, but Granada has its own and that of the rest.” Nestled at the foot of the Sierra Madre mountains, Granada is intensely beautiful and fascinating. It is the perfect place to discover and develop your skills and interests as a travel writer. In this course, you will explore and learn about Granada and use your experiences and curiosity as a traveler to write engaging essays and narratives that include and combine research, analysis, and critical reflection. It is an opportunity not to be missed!

  ENG 125 Literatures of Identity: Latinx Literature (HU, MI)

  Dr. Alexander Lalama

Latinas/os/xs have diverse histories, cultures, and identities, yet many people in the U.S. assume a commonality among Latina/o/x groups. What links exist between these various Latina/o/x groups? What are the main differences or conflicts between them, or between Latinxs and other racial and ethnic groups? How do constructions of Latina/o/x identities contend with the diversity of experiences? In this course, we will read and analyze works by Latinx authors from the 20th and 21st century. The course will cover major themes and issues that inform the works of diverse Latinx authors. Topics may include immigration, nationality, language, Indigeneity, diaspora, the history and effects of Spanish colonization in the Americas, language, the role of family, transnationalism, and more.

  WLS 306 Spain Interim: A Cultural and Historical Perspective (IL)

  Dr. Adolfo Cisneros

Have you ever desired to explore a different culture than your own, and have first-hand experience guided by a knowledgeable instructor and whose second home is Spain? You will have one of the best experiences of your life. A Bradley student said: “This is the best thing that happened to me during my four year at Bradley.” The course will study primarily the development of the Spanish transition to democracy and different aspects of contemporary Spanish civilization and culture. Students will have the opportunity to explore, with the class and also independently, various aspects of Spanish culture (art, history, architecture, music, dance, etc.). Furthermore, WLS 306 will offer the students the opportunity to directly interact with the Spanish culture, to foster the practice of the Spanish language as means of communication, and it will allow students the chance to improve their oral and written skills.
