    Course Highlights

    This course features detailed project descriptions.

    Each week every student presents a multimedia contribution dealing with some aspect of Hispanic culture. Long-term group assignments include creating and reading aloud segments of an original narrative in the form of diary entries, and participation in a simulated trial that requires both preparation and improvisation. Students also watch and comment on recent films, including La virgen de los sicarios (Colombia), Pantaleón y las visitadoras (Perú), a documentary on the kidnapping of Colombian activist Ingrid Betancourt, and segments of Sin noticias de Dios (Spain) with Penelope Cruz, Victoria Abril and Gael García Bernal.
