Introduction To Spanish Literature/Introducción A La Literatura Española


Students will develop a website using the platform Scalar, which will enable them to "assemble media from multiple sources and juxtapose them with their own writing in a variety of ways" (according to Scalar's website). This project, to be introduced at the end of the semester and in juxtaposition to the overall course organization which follows a chronological model, will allow students to attain a perspective on the material they have been studying in a radically new way while at the same time giving them access to a tool which will allow them to bring the various fields of study addressed over the course of the semester (including literature, history and art) into a single media-rich digital space.
