  1. 1. SPANISH LITERATURE AND CULTURAL EXPRESSIONS: ANDALUSIA AS A STARTING POINT Prof. Teresa Lopez-Soto teresals@us.es GENERAL INFORMATION 1. My office hours are: MON 17.00 – 18.00 / TUE 11.00 – 12.00 / THU 11.00 – 12.00 & 17.00 – 18.00 & 20.00 – 21.00 2. Email me if you want to see me. I have a lot of students this year and they usually make appointments. If you don’t make one, I cannot guarantee that I will see you if you just drop by. 3. I was in the States at the time the syllabus was being published. Due to a misunderstanding, they never published the last version. Read this document attentively as much of the syllabus has changed. 4. The course will review major literature works, historical events, music, cultural expressions and painting that can help us understand Spanish society. 5. Classes will consist of lectures (oral presentations by the teacher), field trips, oral presentations by students and other activities. 6. EVALUATION: a. Written assignments: 25% b. Oral presentations: 25% c. Final exam: 50% 7. You will take 2 preliminary tests (grammar-writing-speaking) that will help me decide whether Spanish can be used in formal class presentations (assignments and oral presentations). 8. The final exam will be in English. 1
