Focusing on a variety of texts from different periods and geographical areas in the Spanish-speaking world, this module aims to provide the student with a questioning understanding of the importance of the past and the different ways in which the past can be represented depending on the creator's own historical context, intentions and knowledge. In other words, this module will explore how several highly significant historical moments have been represented through fictions. The syllabus will involve the study of a selection of canonical texts from Spain and Spanish America, ranging from the Renaissance to the present day, that raise issues related to the link between history, memory and cultural expression.
