This course is an introduction to the history of Spain from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. We will cover the Islamic period, the Christian expansion, the imperial age, the liberal and republican regimes, the 20th-century dictatorships, and the late democratic period. Through the analysis of historical sources, literature and poetry, art and film, students will learn not only about the past, but also about the way in which history affects and has affected the collective identities of the Spaniards, and therefore the way in which the past shapes the future.
