SPA344H1: The Spanish Sensorium


Pushing back against the primacy of vision, this course approaches modern Spain from the perspective of our other senses. How does the Spanish state and its concomitant nations smell, feel, taste and sound? What do these other forms of knowing tell us about cultural phenomena? In this course we will consider both primary and secondary source texts; that is, we will be touching, smelling, tasting and listening as well as analyzing the textual manifestations of sensory experience. Taught in Spanish. Offered in alternate years.
