Mi Horario Diario Universitario (My Daily Scholastic Schedule)…

O.K., so maybe some of you are curious as to what my academic courseload is like here in Salamanca…Well, let me give you a lowdown…

While walking to my classes every Monday through Thursday (thank the Lord for classes only four days a week), I walk through streets that look like this…

Eventually, I reach El Edificio de San Isidro (The Building of San Isidro), which looks something like this…

This is where my regular educational grind takes place, and my schedule looks like this…

History of Spain: M 11:10-12:25; W 10:30-11:45

O.K., so it’s pretty obvious what this class is all about–learning about the history of España from Prehistoric times up until today…I figured that while I’m in Spain, it would be at least a little useful to learn more about the place…

Image

…Dr. María Paz Pando Ballesteros, my instructor–Such a sweet woman, :-)…

Art and Architecture: M 12:35-1:50; TH 10:35-11:50

Again, this class is pretty self-explanatory…I enjoy art, so taking this class is a no-brainer…

Image

…Dr. Manuel Pérez Hernández–A humorous, soft-spoken man with a deep, relaxing voice, :-)…

Voices of Modern Spain: T 1:00-2:15; W: 4:40-5:55

A course that examines how various artistic expressions (literature, film, music, etc.) compliment our cultural understanding of Spain, from the late 19th century to today…Having previously taken SPN 317, the mandatory course for Spanish majors/minors that centers around a cultural-literary study of Spain, I’m at least somewhat familiar with the material–La Crisis de ’98, the dictatorship of Franco, the transition to democracy, La Movida–which fascinates me…

Image

…Dr. Javier Sánchez Zapatero–A really, really cool cat, :-)…

Female Latinamerican Writers: T 4:30-5:45; TH 4:00-5:15

Once again, pretty self-explanatory…Having taken a Women’s and Gender Studies class and a Transatlantic theatre class, I’ve had some exposure to feminine/feminist theory, and it fascinates me how much the historical exploitation/repression of women–a theme that, obviously, permeates through much of feminine/feminist works–corresponds to the exploitation/repression of the poor, marginalized people of Latinamerica (well, everywhere, really)…

Image

…Dr. Claudia González–Very thought-provoking (which I like), :-)…

A mis profesores: Si estáis leyendo este, no os doy lisonjas para mejorar mis notas/mi fama con vosotros (…bueno…)…¡¡Es que pienso verdaderamente que sois buena gente, :-)!!…
