Catalonia Is Not Spain? Modern Catalan Culture in Context (MLS2070)

15 credits

If you travel to Catalonia, you will see graffiti everywhere proclaiming (in English) that ‘Catalonia is not Spain’. In this module, you will study modern representations of Catalan identity – film, sport, literature, language its political institutions and more – to discover what it is that makes Catalonia different, and the history behind these differences. You will also study how Catalonia is portrayed outside its borders, primarily in Spain, as well as the UK.

No knowledge of Catalan is required for this module; where short Catalan resources are used, you will be provided with an English and Spanish translation.
