SPAN 225 - A Cultural Perspective: Spain...New Mexico Units: 3

A perspective of cultural diversity in Spain and the American Southwest. This course will introduce the differing cultures of Spain within a historical context. Students will look closely at the intertwining of art, religion and history during the Middle Ages, focusing on the Camino de Santiago, the St. James pilgrimage route across northern Spain that is still traveled today. The course will include a study of the influence of the Moors upon the language, art and philosophy of Spain. It will trace the first Spanish explorers as they brought the traditions of the Old World into New Mexico, before the founding of Jamestown. This blending of the Spanish and Pueblo culture has resulted in the uniqueness of the Southwest today. The course will be taught in English and is the same as HUM 225.
