Course Description Prerequisites: SPAN UN3300SPAN UN3349SPAN UN3350 Prerequisites: Course intended to be taken by all Spanish majors during the fall of their senior year. Third-year bridge course (UN3300), and introductory surveys (UN3349, UN3350). Throughout the nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries, after the loss of most of its empire, Spain is engaged in reconceptualizing itself as a constitutional monarchy with updated political, economic, and social institutions. A cornerstone of this transformation is the development of a legal/juridical system dependent on newfangled notions like "normalcy,"  "delinquency," or "insanity," and in dialogue with other cultural systems like medicine, journalism, literature, and politics. Intellectuals in various fields worked to produce the new ideal citizen defined primarily by law, as well as its polar opposite, the deviant/delinquent. Our course will examine this chronological process in the peninsula, as well as its different functioning in the remaining colonial world (Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines).
