SPAN 6670 The Spanish Novel from Post-War to Post-Franco

This course studies developments in the novel in Spain from the 1940s to the present. Special attention is given to the national context during this time, including the experience of dictatorship, transition, and democracy, as well as to the way in which the Spanish novel has interfaced with trends in Europe and the Americas; theoretical selections from formalism to post-structuralism are also discussed.
