The Return of the Collective (Psychosocial Approach Contemporary Spain) Theatre, Culture, & Identity
The hasty transformation experienced by Spanish society the last 40+ years demands questioning the processes involved in its changing identities. This course delves into the economic, cultural, and linguistic circumstances that shaped the portrait of current Spain. By looking into contemporary theatrical production, we will consider causes, motivations, and consequences of the emergence of new subjectivities linked to the coming of democracy. To reach a better understanding of these new ways of thinking, sentimentalities, and behaviors operating in today's Spain, special attention will be paid to the social conditionings involved in the shaping of identities.
