Urban Fiction and Collective Imagination: Madrid Through Literature and Film


This Duke in Madrid course offers a panoramic look at some of the most important, contemporary artistic and cultural expressions and how they represent Madrid. While looking at historical, social and artistic contexts, we will spend time reflecting and engaging in debates about issues that have been shaping the dynamics of modern cities such as multiculturalism, migration and the role of women. Also, we will look for a way to position Madrid in the face of global questions about Hispanic culture and how it is perceived in other countries.
