Program Description

This course considers the interconnected histories of Spain and North Africa through the lens of travel writing and other historical sources. As we journey through the region, students will read and reflect upon other explorers’ essays about the sites as well as scholarly analyses of the region’s history and present. Furthermore, local scholars will join CNU faculty for presentations that delve into rich Hispano-African connections. Learners will maintain a daily travel journal that contains their own observations about each city that we visit, along with reactions to course material. Upon returning to the United States, students will compile their records into a digital travel essay that discusses their course experience. Lecture and discussion in English. Readings and essay in Spanish for SPAN students and English for HIST and MLAN students.

HIST 395 | MLAN 370 | SPAN 370 - student chooses one course to take.
