Spanish Language, Literatures, and Culture
College of Arts and Humanities
2215 Jiménez Hall
The signature of our department is its ability to put into play the singularity of literary and linguistic experiences in relation to politics and philosophy. By rethinking conventional historical, cultural and language boundaries across disciplines, our undergraduate and graduate programs critically engage different archives across the Americas, the Latina/o United States, the Luso-Brazilian world, and Spain in its Iberian and transatlantic contexts. Our intellectual agenda involves diverse forms of community and civic engagement. With a hemispheric and international perspective, our program fosters both critical and creative work. Our graduates are prepared for diverse career tracks in education, business, government, law, medicine, the arts, and social work.
