Instructor: Jacopo Caucci
The advanced semestral course in Spanish aims at teaching students some fundamental aspects of the Spanish language and of the Hispanic culture. Students will be examined by the CLA (B2 level; written and oral comprehension, general knowledge of the language). A special attention will be devoted to the problems of separating walls in the Hispanic context: “las vallas”, real barriers separating Morocco from the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla, and the frontier that cuts in two parts North America, the US on one side and Mexico on the other.
The reading list will be composed by essays, articles in journals, magazines and newspapers, and other materials like movies, documentaries and songs available on the web.
Course notes are available at Centro stampa Il Prato, via Carlo del Prete 38r, Firenze (since the beginning of the II semester).
