IC/CM 329 - Language, Culture and Communication: Hispanic Cultures and their Societies

This course has been designed to introduce students to Hispanic cultures and their societies. Spain and Latin America will be approached from a transatlantic perspective taking into consideration their diversity and their complexity. Questions related to identity, nation and territory are essential and thus will be analyzed and discussed in class. The course will also inquire into the concept of culture and cultural identity and it will discuss perceptions of time, society, family, religion and values in Hispanic societies. Some basic communication theory will be presented and sites of cultural interest visited

NOTE: This course is offered during the regular semester and in the summer. For summer sections, the course schedule is condensed, but the content, learning outcomes, and contact hours are the same.
