Global Madrid

SPANISH 438SA

Focusing on Madrid’s porous LatinX landscape, this course draws comparative perspectives across countries and cultures. Madrid’s demographic growth, at least since the late-1980s, includes migrants from Bolivia, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Honduras, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela. Rather than drawing clear-cut “authenticating” distinctions between LatinX and “the rest,” this seminar places Latin and X––LatinX––in dialogue with the Iberian Peninsula and Spanish-speaking “communities” alongside sociocultural imaginaries that enmesh Spaniards, Latin Americans, Latino/a/Xs, and beyond. Taught at Duke in Madrid.
