The Spanish Civil War is without a doubt the most dramatic and transcendental episode in the history of Spain during the twentieth century. And as a prelude to World War II, it also had deep international repercussions. Likewise, from the beginning this armed conflict left an impact in the artistic community, as we can see reflected in such works as Pablo Picasso’s Guernica, films, countless stories, poems, novels and the commitment of writers and poets who were either fighting at the front lines or taking sides.
In this course, we will learn about the war’s impact on the Spanish society of the time and the rest of the world. Students will be able to practice their Spanish with a selection of the best tales, stories, novel fragments and movies about the Spanish Civil War. These materials will allow us to study the causes, the contenders, the dispute, the repression and the consequences of this war in present-day Spain.
