Culture Courses

SPAN 330UPFS - "SKETCHES OF SPAIN": SPAIN IN CONTEMPORARY MASS AND VISUAL CULTURE

The course analyses the categories, political, business, social, anthropological or aesthetic, at work in the idea of a Spanish "typicality", a "Spanish-ness" or "españolidad", in the realms of visual and material culture, advertising and public relations, graphic design and in the arts. Its goal is a critical reflection on the notion of what denotes (or qualifies) in an object, an attitude, an artifact, a work of art, a piece of literature, the condition of being "Spanish" and how the graphic industry and the communications world has helped businesses and institutions in the building of a Spanish competitiveness. The point of departure is a critical deconstruction of the "Spanish" topic at different moments in history (basically modern and contemporary times), and not an essentialist interpretation of a presumed cultural and anthropological "identity" of Spain. The course would address questions such : how has "Spanish-ness" been fabricated historically in Spain and outside? How does it function symbolically at different levels and times? Which is it its efficacy in brand discourses of Spanish businesses and institutions? Main areas considered in this course are advertising, public relations, typography and graphic design. Taught in English.
