Program Description:
 
Discovering Spain


PROGRAM OVERVIEW 
Experience a deep sense of place in beautiful, sunny Spain.  Visit four distinct regions during this three-week International Faculty Led course and explore the intimacies of place and human geographies. 
 
In this course, we will examine the diverse cultures, people, traditions, landscapes and places of Spain.  On our journey, we will visit the following regions-cities of Spain:  Andalusia – Seville, Cordoba and Granada, Castile La Mancha - Madrid, Galicia – Santiago and Mougas, and Catalonia – Barcelona.  We’ll watch, dance and play flamenco, Galician foot gigs and Txalaparta, visit awe inspiring sites, eat delicious Spanish cuisine, talk, walk and explore the four corners of this incredible place.
 
While we explore these cultures and histories, we will also make connections to our stories and culture, and play with narratives in an exchange with our community partner in Spain. This class will give us a distinctive opportunity to engage in this work on both the intimate and global level.
 
Using creativity as a means of expressing place and identity, we’ll tell our new and changing stories as the final project. Creative mediums will be identified and discussed on a per student basis, giving students the chance to find a medium they can and want to work with:  these can include film, music, written narratives, art and design and more.    Projects will allow us to tell the story of our identities here and now, with the inspiration from Spain and its global reach.  The process of building and defining the final projects will be part of the learning experience.
