Citizenship in Spain and Latin America - SPAN2616

Year - 2020

This Unit provides a platform for the study of Spanish and Latin American societies through a critical examination of the concept of citizenship and its cultural conditionings. The types of rights, duties, claims and symbols that are associated with the notion of citizenship are discussed through a multidisciplinary approach that connects the critical analysis of cultural products (literary, musical, religious and cinematic) with the study of contemporary social movements and political processes in Spain and Latin America.
