Description: 

The aim of this course is to analyze the main historical events that, from Spain’s arrival in the Americas (1492) until the Spanish-American War (1898), have linked the history of Spain to the American continent. The objective is to learn in-depth the Spanish-Latin American relationships from the end of the fifteenth century until the end of the nineteenth century, and the main reciprocal influences between them in the field of policy, culture, and history.

The classes and course-related trips will help students understand the evolution of these relations through the analysis of literature, exhibitions, architecture, and films.

This course has been approved by the curriculum committee subject recommendations. An updated syllabus reflecting these recommendations will be available during the upcoming weeks.
