INDS 226 Constructing Madrid, Spain, and Iberian Worlds

What tools and information do you need to understand Madrid and the Iberian Peninsula in their global and multicultural contexts? We will begin with the flows of capital, people, goods, and ideas through Spain and Portugal, the Mediterranean and Atlantic Worlds, and parts of Asia. Then we will focus on the transformation of urban spaces prior to, during, and after Spain's military dictatorship. The course concludes with an analysis of post-conflict reconstruction processes and their relation to Spain's cultural heritage in the 21st century. [GM1, GM2, V]
