Jimenez, Kietrys

Sections B and C:

In this course, students will improve their oral and written communication in Spanish, as well as deepen their knowledge of and approach to the Spanish-speaking world. A variety of readings and digital media (e.g., films, shorts, videos, podcasts) will be the starting point for conversations and as well as written and oral assignments, which will include both informal and academic registers.

Our topic for the semester will be human rights and social justice in the contemporary Spanish-speaking world, including Spain, Latin America, and the U.S. Topics may include racial justice, immigration, violence against women, reproductive rights, political oppression, LGBTQ+ rights, responsible use of resources, and linguistic rights.

We will meet in person one day a week and on Zoom on the other day. If COVID were to hit another wave, we would move fully remote. If COVID wanes significantly, we will move to primarily in-person classes. More information will be available in August.
