Course Description This course’s point of departure is the concept that emotional regimes regulating allowable or forbidden feelings and practices are at the root of social and political order. We will explore the relationship between the construction of the contemporary Spanish nation and the affective sphere through analysis of theoretical and critical works, in addition to nineteenth- through twenty-first century cultural texts—from canonical and noncanonical fiction to popular web sites—that revolve around the subjects of love, marriage, and relationships in relation to matters of citizenship, social class, and gender. Course is conducted entirely in Spanish.This course’s point of departure is the concept that emotional regimes regulating allowable or forbidden feelings and practices are at the root of social and political order.
